Awesome of the Day: The AJC Decatur Book Festival

This weekend, more than 300 authors and thousands of readers will descend upon our little city of Decatur, Ga., for the largest independent book festival in the U.S. Jonathan Franzen will launch his new novel Freedom here. He’ll be joined by George Dawes Green (founder of The Moth), Pulitzer Prize winners David Finkel and Nathasha Trethewey and Paste books editor Charles McNair.

The latter will present “The Truth is in the Telling,” along with renowned Esquire writer (and a hell of a singer) Tom Junod on Sunday at noon. For a full schedule visit
