BookFest Gwinnett Book Festival
On June 15, the inaugural BookFest Gwinnett (BFG) book festival will be launched to celebrate the diverse Metro Atlanta literary community. BFG will be held within the most diverse county in the Southeast and in one of its most diverse cities, Norcross. The lead sponsor is the 105-year-old Atlanta Writers Club, which will offer more than two dozen extraordinary writers and other creative artists, including Kenny Leon and Tayari Jones, writing workshops, and activities for children. BFG is also sponsored by the Gwinnett County Public Library, Georgia Humanities, and the Norcross Public Arts Commission.
