In a normal year, the AJC Decatur Book Festival presented by Emory University is one of the largest of its kind in the nation, hosting somewhere in the ballpark of 300 authors and 100,000 attendees at some 20 venues — all within walking distance of the Decatur Square. It is an amazing event and certainly one of the highlights of our year.
Last year was not a normal year. The festival was canceled.
2021 is not a normal year, but things are looking better!
Here's the big news -- the Decatur Book Festival is moving permanently to the first weekend of October. This year an abreviated festival will be held on Saturday, October 2nd. The list of authors will announced in early July.

Since the festival’s inception in 2006 Little Shop has been intimately involved by assisting in programming, serving on advisory boards, moderating author presentations, and acting as a bookseller. We’re thrilled that it is coming back this year!
