Dozens of Emory faculty, staff and alumni will take part in the annual AJC Decatur Book Festival, giving readings and serving on panels. The festival takes place over the Labor Day Weekend Sept. 2-4.
In celebration of Emory's 175th anniversary partnership of heart and mind with Georgia,
Emory's Office of Communications and Marketing partnered with the Emory Libraries to sponsor the festival for the University.
An Emory stage will highlight major authors while an Emory tent will host author booksignings. See the author schedule at the Emory Libraries tent.
Hear from "author wrangler" Julie Delliquanti, Emory's liaison to the Decatur Book Festival, about what to expect.
