About AJC Decatur Book Festival

Born in downtown Decatur over Labor Day Weekend 2006, the AJC Decatur Book Festival has since grown to be recognized as the largest independent book festival in the country — and the fifth largest in the world. Each year, attendees mingle with hundreds of world-class authors at book signings, readings, and soirées. The list of authors appearances for 2019 has yet to be revealed; however, poets Jericho Brown, James Davis May, and this year’s Georgia Poet Laureate Chelsea Rathburn are already on board for the coming year. Stay tuned for more information regarding tracks for young adult books, cookbooks, political nonfiction, experimental poetry, and a whole lot more.
