About the Book:
From 1 to 3 September 2017, Alan Cameron Roberts, author of the winning piece Never Forgive, Never Forget 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. Alan Cameron Roberts has had his career in its peak. He was successful being an army officer, an architectural designer, a condominium developer, and a father of two. He is the author of Bakeur’s Dozen, he also wrote and produced the nationally-distributed film Armed and Deadly, and appeared in it. He now makes a comeback in the literary spotlight with his new piece Never Forgive, Never Forget, a suspense thriller that introduces the sisters Frances and Precious who connive to find out the truth about a bloody murder that has been pinned on Precious who is currently in a Sarasota jail. The readers will be taken into a flabbergasting switch when Frances, a talented New York actress finds herself playing a character on the stage of real life after two fabulous weeks of her vacation, in connection to the purpose of helping her younger sister Precious. The real mystery that readers should find out is— will the odds be ever in their favor?
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 Roberts and his piece, Never Forgive, Never Forget. 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, Alan Cameron Roberts 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.”
