Like film festivals, you can find book festivals everywhere. Most I have attended offer workshops in addition to author presentations, book signings, and of course the opportunity to browse hundreds of books in a truly festive setting. In 2019, my plans include: the Decatur Book Festival, Decatur, Georgia (for the first time) and the Amelia Island Book Festival, Fernandina Beach, Florida. Each year, I have to choose between the Amelia Island Book Festival and the Savannah Book Festival, Savannah, Georgia, because they run at the same time. In 2019, my choice is the Amelia Island Book Festival for their outstanding Signature Event Authors list.
