Those of you who haven’t made any plans for Labor Day Weekend might want to check out a unique event in Decatur. The Decatur Book Festival will host numerous authors talking about their books and signing autographs. Of interest to me is the Target Children’s Stage. Authors such as Tony DiTerlizzi (Spiderwick), Doreen Cronin (Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts Comics), Robert Sabuda (numerous, amazing pop-up books), Sarah Phineas (The Magic Thief), and many more will be speaking about their writing. This is such a rare opportunity to see so many talented authors in one place, and the best part is that the event is FREE. My wife and I are planning to go to both days and spend most of our time at the children’s stage. In addition to authors, there will be lots of activities related to books and reading. This is a great family outing, and I just thought I would pass it along in case you are interested.
