Author Shares Life's Roller Coaster Ride at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — From 1 to 3 September 2017, Tina Marie, author of the piece Life's a Roller Coaster Ride will be joining this year's AJC Decatur Book Festival, a community-based, non-profit event and largest independent festival in the country. Being renowned as one of the five largest festivals in the country, DBF continues to gather world-class authors as well as hundreds of thousands of festival-goers to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children's area, live music, parade, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and others. These activities will be happening in and around the historic downtown Decatur square.
"We always knew Atlanta had a thriving writing and book community, but it needed a centerpiece to bring all the parts together," Tom Bell points out as he recalls the history of DBF. It was when Daren Wang hatched a hare-brained idea to establish a festival celebrating the spoken/written word that brought the other dreamers and believers together. Tom Bell — founding program director, Linda Harris, Richard Lenz, Alice Murray, Bill Starr and Judy Turner then began brewing the magic.
The DBF got rave reviews shortly after 18 months of hard work and dedication in volunteering full-time, until its commencement over Labor Day weekend back in 2006, which was attended by over 100 authors and 50, 000 people. The success of the event was contributed by the combination of supportive local businesses and restaurants, eager and able volunteers, and the ability to walk easily from venue to venue.
Tina Marie pens Life's a Roller Coaster Ride, a collection of poetry that discloses every chapter of her life. She features a logical poem that summarizes pretty much the content and the topics that this collection includes: "The past has helped mold us! The present defines the breath we take to strive another moment in the life we live. The future holds no promise other than our spiritual belief. The future has been known to alter our perspective and seal our fate. I must warn you that everyone has a soul. I will tell you this chapter in your life may take a heavy toll. I must forewarn you in all you decide to do. I will tell you some of what one may go through. I must warn you that dying inside reveals the truth.
I will tell you the pain you may feel is worse than a pulled tooth. What you say, What you do, It's entirely up to you!" A must-read book of poetry!
The author, together with BookBlastPro will be present at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about Tina Marie and her piece, Life's a Roller Coaster Ride. They will also get bookmarks and an opportunity of photo documentation which will be released after the event. The book selling will be announced at the event.
AJC Decatur Book Festival — Bookzilla, Tina Marie’s book and the rest of the fun activities will make this event a literary powerhouse that will delight the attendees and will make this annual event a huge success, as what Tom Bell expressed: "That's what the festival does best."
