The Third Annual AJC Decatur Book Festival

Festival organizers would like to thank everyone who made this great event possible, including the volunteers, attendees, our sponsors — particularly the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and DeKalb Medical — and of course, the authors. We couldn't have put on America's largest independent book festival without your help.

We count on individual donations to ensure that the festival is free to
all, so please consider joining us in building this great tradition! If
you'd like to contribute to DBF, click here to make a donation. Any
contribution you make will help make next year's festival even better
and is, of course, tax deductible.

Be sure to mark your calendars for next year's book festival, once again
held Labor Day weekend, September 4-6, 2009.
