Decatur Book Festival

This past weekend was the Decatur Book Festival. I look forward to this event every year. This year I was in the booth - Get Organized! - with 3 other organizers. This gave us a chance to sell our books, sign up people to participate in our upcoming workshop (From Vision to Victory Workshop- at Eagle Eye Book Shop- Sept. 11, 18, & 25), give information about our services, and for those who visited our booth and were interested in organizing - give them passes to our next NAPO meeting.
Every year I enjoy talking with all of the people who stop to look at our before/after pictures, share their organizational challenges or victories, talk about book ideas they have, or ask questions about our NAPO organization or the Atlanta Hoarding group. I always end up meeting people who become new friends and colleagues.
It is also fun to go around and visit the other booths. I love to see the new books that are out and some of the products concerning the books. Other authors are in their booths and enjoy chatting about their books.
And as with any festival, there is all of that good food and good food smells, the sound of people talking and laughing,and the children's parades. The festival ended with the Zydeco band and some great dancing by the gazebo.
I am already looking forward to next year.
