TWO DAYS UNTIL THE AJC DECATUR BOOK FESTIVAL!!!

Great authors are coming to The Escape as well!

The Escape, which features young adult authors, has moved to the Old Courthouse this year and author appearances have expanded to both Saturday and Sunday.  Highlighted here is just one of many, many highlights!

David Levithan, the author of Boy Meets Boy, Are We There Yet?, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, and Love is the Higher Law will be at The Escape on Saturday at 1 p.m.  He will be speaking about his newest book, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which was co-authored with John Green.  He's a great writer.  He's pretty prolific, and we hear he's a very interesting guy.

Now, having Mr. Levithan all by his lonesome would be pretty darn impressive.  But to raise the ante, he'll be joined by Terra Elan McVoy, author of Pure and After the Kiss, the later of which came out earlier this year from Simon Pulse.  As Terra is the former manager of Little Shop of Stories, we can guarantee that she's great!

Cinda Williams Chima, Carrie Ryan, Nancy Werlin, Kirsten Miller, and Robin Benway are just a handful of other great authors appearing on The Escape this weekend.

And it's all FREE!
