I'm calling all Atlanta friends...
From the Decatur site (and more details here):
Keeping with tradition, the AJC Decatur Book Festival will hold its annual Writers Conference on Friday, August 30th at Agnes Scott College. A handful of stellar authors have been invited to kick off the festival, teach workshops, and share their special knowledge and skills with the public. This activity begins with a Writers Conference keynote address at 2:30pm, spilling into workshops from 4pm until 6pm.
The keynote address will be given by Clyde Edgerton. He is the author of ten novels, a book of advice, a memoir, and numerous short stories and essays. Edgerton has been a Guggenheim Fellow, and five of his novels have been New York Times Notable Books. He will be discussing writing and his new book Papadaddy’s Book For New Fathers: Advice to Dads of All Ages.
Edgerton will deliver his keynote speech from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Refreshments and book sales follow. Individual writer workshops take place at Buttrick Hall beginning at 4:00 p.m. Get your ticket now at http://ajcdbfwriterskeynote.eventbrite.com.
