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.
