Author Brings the Citizens Ununited at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
Online PR News – 21-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Phillip R. Oliver, author of Citizens Ununited: A Novel 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.
Phillip R. Oliver is an attorney in Billings, Montana. He is an army brat born in California and raised in Virginia; received degrees from Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia; and spent twelve years in the computer business in various capacities. Oliver raises Angus cattle, horses, and chickens with his wife. He is an avid reader of historical fiction and he reads up to three books a week. Now he turns his love for reading as an inspiration in writing his own novel Citizens Ununited: A Novel, a piece that centers “dark money”. The story commences when the US Supreme Court’s Citizen United opened the floodgates to unlimited illegal contributions from several unknown sources. Alexandra, a former Montana rodeo star and sharpshooter finds out about the suspicious data hidden in computer files. The story progresses when Alexandra together with a rogue FBI agent are being led to a Montana missile site where they find out about the impending overthrow of the US government. This brilliant piece from Oliver’s inventive imagination will definitely bring the readers into an action-packed adventure. The novel’s twist and turns will make it hard-to-put-down.
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 Oliver and his piece, of Citizens Ununited: A Novel. 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, Phillip R. Oliver’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."
