Alan Gratz is coming to DBF!

Alan Gratz
Decatur Book Festival
Target Children's Stage
Sunday at 3 p.m.

Former Avondale resident Alan Gratz, who currently hangs out in the mountains of western North Carolina, returns to the Decatur Book Festival with a new book. The Brooklyn Nine follows nine generation of a family and their connection to baseball. Alan had preiously written one of my all-time favorites, Samurai Shortstop, which also combines sports with historical fiction, and Something Rotten and Something Wicked (something of a combination of Shakespeare and Raymond Chandler).

Alan's a great writer and a cool guy. He is also a cool author and a great guy. We're thrilled to have him back. Check out his web site to learn more about Alan and his books.
