Booklovers take your (book)mark…


I hope to run into you at some point during the Decatur Book Festival, which takes place this Labor Day weekend. I’ve attended almost every year since I moved here in 2007, and The Festival is, by far, my favorite annual Atlanta-area event.

Friday night I’ll be attending Congressman John Lewis’ keynote address. Saturday afternoon at 2 PM, my daughter and I will be introducing internationally best-selling middle grade/young adult author Gordon Korman, and hitting just about as many panels/talks that I can cram into a two-day period.

My next article for ArtsATL profiles two of the weekend’s authors– affirmative action expert and Harvard Law Professor Randall Kennedy, as well as University of Georgia Professor and Kindezi Charter School hip-hop and social justice teacher Dr. Bettina Love.

If you like the article, I’d GREATLY appreciate it if you could share it on Facebook or Twitter. (Please? Pretty please?)

And if you see me walking around, stuffing my mouth with a vegetarian corn dog (yes, they sell them and I eat them every year) please stop me and say hello!

Hope to see you there!
