Author Brings Cupside Down at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — From 1 to 3 September 2017, Terry Cliett, author of the fictional piece Cupside Down 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.
Terry Cliett lives in Milledgeville, Georgia. He is president and CEO of InCorVa, Inc; a pastor and a former prison chaplain. Cliett has been writing both fiction and non-fiction since the 1970's and his written materials have been used in prisons, schools, businesses, churches, and homes to revitalize the lives of people of all ages. Cupside Down is one of his works, a fictional piece that will serve a lesson to every reader. The story commences when Jonathan wakes up in a jail cell. Since this has been his life, he finally decides that something has to change. He finally realizes the need of becoming a better version of himself. But to Jonathan, the journey from stale immaturity into manhood is more difficult than he thought at first. He comes up with a question: "How exactly do you change who you are?" Jonathan finds it impossible to break free of the grip of his personal demons that follow him, despite his best efforts. Will Jonathan succeed? This is a relatable piece that entails struggles and triumphs that come with personal change, just like Jonathan, all people have their own demons and everyone goes through the journey with consequences, dilemmas, relationships, and lessons.
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 Cliett and his piece, Cupside Down. 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, Terry Cliett'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."
