And now, a message from our friends in marketing:
The AJC Decatur Book Festival is the largest independent book festival in the country. It takes hundreds of volunteers to put on a world class book festival. Join the volunteer team during Labor Day weekend to help show the tens of thousands of people attending that Decatur knows how to put on a festival! Volunteers receive a distinctive festival T-shirt.
Many volunteer positions have already been filled but there are still numerous openings, especially on Sunday. Visit the website for a list of volunteer positions and job descriptions. Available positions include:
· Book Market on the Square Set Up – Saturday, Sept. 4 from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (great for groups). Volunteer early, so you can have uninterrupted enjoyment of the festival.
· Book Market on the Square Close Down – Sunday, Sept. 5 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (great for groups). A great way to cap off a great Festival.
· Author Talk/Signing Venue Support (including the Children’s Stage and the Teen Stage/The Escape) – Various shifts available on Saturday and Sunday. Become one of our Festival ambassadors. Training is required.
