Author Unfolds the Words of Confucius at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017
ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — From 1 to 3 September 2017, Edward V. Yang, author of the piece Confucius Says… There Are No Fortune Cookies in China: How Understanding Chinese Culture is Key to Building Relationships 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.
Edward V. Yang was born in China and raised in Myanmar; he currently resides in Southern California. He earned an MBA from Pepperdine University; and is chairman and president of iSoftStone Inc. Yang brings the readers an enriching piece; Confucius Says… There Are No Fortune Cookies in China: How Understanding Chinese Culture is Key to Building Relationships, co-authored by Kate Ou, a software engineer and Dennis Smith. The three explain what continuously divides global cultures, especially that of China in the East West and the United States in the West. This book shows the readers how China elevates to global superpower status and how vital it is for Americans to comprehend the core principles about the way the their counterparts in China think and act. Furthermore, this discusses the customs, history and business practices in China, with and eye toward enhancing relationships through a better understanding of the culture of the East through American eyes. This is a must-read not only for the people from China and America, but also for those who are handling businesses that want to improve in their field.
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 Yang and his piece, Confucius Says… There Are No Fortune Cookies in China: How Understanding Chinese Culture is Key to Building Relationships. 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, Edward V. Yang'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."
