Location: Decatur

Series: Georgia Center for the Book's Festival of Writers
Age Group: Adult (18+)

We help celebrate the annual week-long Decatur Arts Festival with a special appearance by Justin Cronin, author of the prize-winning novels  The Summer Guest and Mary and O’Neil. He joins us to discuss his latest acclaimed novel, The Passage, chosen by Amazon as one of the best books of the month in its hardback release. Cronin is a ”remarkable storyteller” and you don’t have to be a fan of vampire fiction to be enthralled by this exciting novel about a virus that nearly destroys the world and a 6-year-old girl who saves it. Cronin is a terrific writer -- he’s won the PEN/Hemingway Award and the Stephen Crane prize -- and this is a breathakingly good, fun book that will keep you mesmerized. Don’t miss this event, and we’ll have books for sale and signing.
