Author Shares His Life at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 18-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – Rev. John Booko, Sr. , author of the a biography Abundant Blessings: From My 60 Years Of Ministering 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.
Rev. John Booko, Sr. is an American born Assyrian whose parents were born in the Northern Iraq. He has quite an outstanding background; he served in World War II in the United States Navy from February 1943 to December 1945, he obtained his bachelor's degree in Theology from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary in Chicago Illinois, and a Master of Arts degree from Northwestern University Graduate School in Evanston. Having so many success stories of him being a Baptist Minister, one of the highlights of Booko's achievements in life is the success of the three books that he had published: Assyria-The Forgotten Nation In Prophecy, The Assyrian Revelation, and No Prayer Power. Now he brings another book to the readers-Abundant Blessings: From My 60 Years Of Ministering, a book that shares his life's story. This book reveals over 60 years of the author's ministry in four churches and traveling ministry of 20 years. It highlights his 90 years of existence, carrying all the wisdom that he had obtained in all those years. The author emphasizes how this book will teach some wisdom, as highlighted in a quote that he relates his life to: "There are many seeds to be sown into your life from these pages which I hope will bring forth good fruit into your life like I have experienced. There will be treasures that will surprise you and bless you." This is a powerful memoir that will captivate the readers, may they be members on non-members of a ministry.
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 Booko and his piece, Abundant Blessings: From My 60 Years Of Ministering. 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, Rev. John Booko'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."
