Gay writers at Decatur Book Fest

As the AJC Decatur Book Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary, the Labor Day weekend festival will again include an LGBT track.

The festival is partnering with the Atlanta Queer Literary Festival to bring LGBT writers to town, according to Franklin Abbott, the chair and one of the founders of AQLF.

“We’re very excited about this,” he says. “The Decatur Book Festival is one of the most successful book festivals in the world and the biggest in the Southeast. Decatur is the perfect spot for it.”
