Scenes from a Book Festival Press Launch

The 2012
AJC Decatur Book Festival
presented by DeKalb Medical
was launched on Monday at Eddie's Attic.
I've blogged about this in Decatur Metro today, but thought this would be a good place to post a few photos of the event.

 Daren Wang, the festival's executive director,
talked about some of the exciting new things happening
at this year's festival.

 Programming Director Terra Elan McVoy
gave us a partial rundown of the great authors
that she has lined up.  Wow!

The 3-D version of Bookzilla was introduced by
Richard Lenz, CEO of Lenz Marketing.

Bookzilla announced that it is running for president.

This very cool poster was unveiled!  Go Bookzilla!

Daren introduced a new fundraiser for 2012, the auctioning of Little Free Libraries -- like this one.  There will be a dozen,
each painted by a different local artist.

 This one is by Elizabeth Dulemba, author and illustrator of children's books. It is strikingly gorgeous!

 James Dean's artistry elicited more than a few
"Ooooooh!"s from the crowd.

For a lot more information,
