Decatur Book Festival in Pictures, Part Two


Written on September 7, 2007 at 1:16 pm, by Amelia

Since Lain has given you a brief run-down of the first day of the festival, I’ll pick up with the early evening of Saturday, which was focused on our brand spanking new teen literary magazine, Soy Nut Butter.

Here are the brave Butters nobly hawking their wares. See how they’re brilliantly using homemade soy nut butter cookies to sell the magazine? You just wish your editors were as creative and clever as our editors.

Cat Explains Soy Nut Butter

After taking some of the best showers of our entire lives, the Butters, Terra, and I did things like roll coolers full of questionable lemonade down the street in preparation for the Salon. It was great.

Fear of Cancer

Several Dancers Core was being used by Dekalb Medical Center during the day, so we had some awfully chipper backdrops for the selling of the magazine at the salon. Those are three of our editors at the table, and a young man whose purpose was, as far as I can tell, to get Editor Sallie hummus.

Here’s one of the authors reading at the literary salon, which also had live bluegrass, delicious food, and Lain and I yelling things like–

“Oh man! Nothing would be better than owning a copy of this incredible literary magazine! Thank goodness we still have copies available for purchase!”

Subtlety is not our strength.

For the record, if you’re interested in purchasing your own copy of Soy Nut Butter, do let us know. We still have copies available, and we realize that not all of you were able to come to the festival. While there are very few good excuses for that, color us enablers.
