This year, our collective story is about voice. Voices that tell stories, inform or challenge. Voices that answer questions or address issues. And voices that share a new perspective or provide comfort. Check out some of the reading curated reading lists below, then come meet the authors at the 2018 AJC Decatur Book Festival!
Voices that are familiar to us, whether by notoriety, proximity to Decatur, or previous appearances at the festival.
It’s always exciting to discover debut authors and this year we’re thrilled to introduce these wonderful new voices to Decatur’s rich readership through the New Voices reading list.
These books and stories teach us new things, whether about the world around us, beliefs within us, or things outside our grasp.
Voices are critical to shed light on our culture, on our relationships, and how we’ve navigated our past.
This year the festival has an amazing collection of voices that share stories of change, or dive into topics that need to see change.
Since 2014, the DBF, with support from MailChimp, has offered a unique author-curated track, working with a notable author to personally select a group of authors to present at the festival. This year former teacher, journalist, and writer Shea Serrano has gathered a diverse group of young voices for this year’s festival.
