Bring on the books this Labor Day weekend at the 2018 AJC Decatur Book Festival — the largest independent book festival in the nation. Since 2005, the festival has drawn many to Decatur Square for book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children's area, live music, parades, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and more. This year, the festival is proud to present more than 600 authors from best-sellers to up-and-coming. Whether you’re a lifelong bibliophile or new to literary magic, the Decatur Book Festival has it all. Support local transit and take MARTA — Decatur Station (E6 on the blue line) is at the center of the festival campus.
