Author Shares a True Story at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Janice LaBonne, author of The Pain of Brokenness: A True Story will be joining this year's AJC Decatur Book Festival, a community-based, non-profit event and largest independent festival in the country. Being renowned as one of the five largest festivals in the country, DBF continues to gather world-class authors as well as hundreds of thousands of festival-goers to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children's area, live music, parade, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and others. These activities will be happening in and around the historic downtown Decatur square.

"We always knew Atlanta had a thriving writing and book community, but it needed a centerpiece to bring all the parts together," Tom Bell points out as he recalls the history of DBF. It was when Daren Wang hatched a hare-brained idea to establish a festival celebrating the spoken/written word that brought the other dreamers and believers together. Tom Bell — founding program director, Linda Harris, Richard Lenz, Alice Murray, Bill Starr and Judy Turner then began brewing the magic.

The DBF got rave reviews shortly after 18 months of hard work and dedication in volunteering full-time, until its commencement over Labor Day weekend back in 2006, which was attended by over 100 authors and 50, 000 people. The success of the event was contributed by the combination of supportive local businesses and restaurants, eager and able volunteers, and the ability to walk easily from venue to venue.

Janice LaBonne, a Registered Financial Consultant has been a financial advisor since 1983. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Science from North Dakota State University and a second degree from Northland Community College in Minnesota. With her over thirty years in the financial services industry, she currently works in the Midwest with an independent broker dealer. LaBonne marks her debut in the literary limelight with The Pain of Brokenness: A True Story, a heart rending true story of a woman’s journey through terrific trials. The story tells a woman’s unquenchable desire to see her mother again. This story, despite the sad tone will inspire and teach the reader to continue living and doing their best and to never forget that God is always watching and guiding. LaBonne makes a promise, through her book, that as long as one turns to Him up there, there’s not a trial that cannot be surpassed and there’s not a broken heart that cannot be healed with Him. This is a must-read for all those who are experiencing life challenges.

BookBlastPro will represent the author at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about LaBonne and her piece, The Pain of Brokenness: A True Story. They will also get bookmarks and an opportunity of photo documentation which will be released after the event. The book selling will be announced at the event.

AJC Decatur Book Festival — Bookzilla, Janice LaBonne’s book and the rest of the fun activities will make this event a literary powerhouse that will delight the attendees and will make this annual event a huge success, as what Tom Bell expressed: "That's what the festival does best."
