PHOTOS: 2009 Decatur Book Festival closing day

I spent the day wandering the Decatur Book Festival, heading from reading to signing to launch to meeting to, well, Raging Burrito, to trivia to concert to picnic. Here were a few of the things I saw. Share your favorite book festival moments in the comments!

Will Pearson, president of Mental Floss, asked Miriam Sokolow, 16, to name whether a quote came from Angelina Jolie or Gandhi. It's tougher than you think. AJC/Jamie Gumbrecht

Not old enough to read? No problem — there were a lot of balloons and bubbles. Here, 2-year-old Benjamin Reynolds caught a few. AJC/Jamie Gumbrecht
