Author Brings Tsali’s Hatchet at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 18-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Midge Shusta, author of the tale Tsali’s Hatchet 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.

Midge Shusta believes the English language. He sees it as one of the most beautiful things that ever existed. While remaining true to his roots, he continues to adopt words from other countries and manages with few difficulties to insert them into ordinary speech that results to a rich, vibrant language perfect for the written word “Gesundheit”, a German word that pertains to “Health” when translated in English. Shusta’s ability in creative writing has opened opportunities for him in venturing the literary field. He brings another wonderful tale, Tsali’s Hatchet, a magnificent story of a Cherokee family. The story highlights the end of a calm, summer day when the cruel Georgia State Pony Soldiers become lords of the day and concludes the end of life in the Cherokee country. Tali rescues his beloved wife Anawaggia and a new war begins. Tsali, together with his sons plan on how to win the war, they make a decision that changes and shapes generations to come. Will the Cherokee family win over the cruel soldiers?

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 Shusta his and book, Tsali’s Hatchet. 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, Midge Shusta’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."
