Why Support the AJC Decatur Book Festival

Fueling Our Literary Community

Donating to the AJC Decatur Book Festival helps us promote literary art and culture. This year at DBF, we are honored to present more than 450 authors, including award-winners, best-sellers and emerging writers. Along with the festival, we are committed to fueling a strong literary community by providing programs and resources for writers throughout the year. We invite you to join us in our efforts with an online contribution.

The DBF showcases prize winning, national bestselling, and local authors while also providing book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children’s area, live music, parades, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and more.

Initiatives the DBF supports include local youth outreach initiatives and the Decatur Writers Studio. This year will be the 10th Annual AJC Decatur Book Festival’s “Early Learning Literacy Celebration.” This event hosts local Pre-K classes at the Decatur Recreation Center on the Friday of the festival weekend. With the intention to encourage learning at home, this program donates over 1,500 Pre-K books to over 450 children. The DBF’s Decatur Writers Studio is a space for writers to work and perfect their craft through collaboration. The Studio also offers classes that cover every genre of writing and are taught by award-winning and bestselling writers.
