Author Reveals an Undying Love at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 18-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Patty Scott, author of the memoir The Porcelain Rose and The Hidden Truths: In Memory of My First Love, 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.
Patty Scott writes a compelling story that highlights an undying love through The Porcelain Rose and The Hidden Truths: In Memory of My First Love. The story initiates Kira’s difficult childhood which leads her to marrying a Nevan. She seems to not give and get the kind of love that she wants. Her childhood memories appear to be dashing her, having a father who was not around for her most of the time. Kira reflects on how the past affects her marriage in some ways. The readers will relate themselves to the story as Scott’s first-rate piece unveils the survival of social taboos and turmoil of the early 1970’s which relates to thepresent situation which involving love that comes in many forms and these have been accepted as opposed to past. It also tells us that there are no seamless solutions to challenging situations, but the Divine is always there to give a love that never dies, just like a porcelain rose.
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 Scott and her piece, The Porcelain Rose and The Hidden Truths: In Memory of My First Love. 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, Patty Scott’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."
