Author Unveils The Life of Blanche Nero at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 16-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Ken Brigham, author of The Life and Deaths of Blanche Nero 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.

Ken Brigham is eminent in the field of scientific literature. He is a professor of medicine at Emory University. He has authored or coauthored two previous novels and two nonfiction books, now he makes a comeback with The Life and Deaths of Blanche Nero, a mystery novel that centers the entire life of Blanche, who at fifteen, witnessed the electrocution of her Italian immigrant father. The answers to her questions slowly reveal as she takes a year sabbatical from the medical school and leaves for Venice to know more about his father’s story in the place where he lived his formative years. Blanche relives and records her remarkable life, including her painful experiences about the death of her father, the struggles that she had to go through growing up, her discoveries on the thrills of medicine, and revelations about the man whom she ever loved. This is a well-researched piece that will leave every reader enriched through the eventful and enigmatic life of the character.

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 Brigham and his piece, The Life and Deaths of Blanche Nero. 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, Ken Brigham’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."
