Bring on the Books

Book FestivalWritten By Nicole Hohman

 If your child is a bookworm, mark his page with a bookmark and get out of the house to celebrate reading with the eighth annual Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival presented by DeKalb Medical. Featuring various activities for the family, the festival added a wide range of children’s programming, including two parades, 23 nationally acclaimed children’s authors and illustrators and ongoing activities at the Book Market and Street Fair. From participating interactive games to dressing up as your favorite “Star Wars” character, children are given the opportunity to discover the treasures of reading. Kids can even search for Waldo as he hides in numerous places around the festival! Engage your children in reading at this kid-friendly event. For more information, visit
