The Decatur Book Fest

…was so cool! Some highlights:

  • Seeing Amiri Baraka read and talk to a packed house at the Decatur Library. He read us some “Lowcoos” (African-American Haikus) and a short story involving a magical clothing laser gun.
  • Walking by the blue and white “Jewish believers in Jesus” booth. They were giving out high-energy bible quizzes.
  • Hearing ZZ Packer tell me she won something by getting my name right on Maud’s ridiculously hard Southern Lit Quiz
  • Drinking real sweet-tea.
  • Seeing Kudzu.
  • Going to an author party in the Old Courthouse.
  • Riding MARTA (Moving Asses Rapidly Through Atlanta).
  • Seeing a couple of long-time readers of my work in person at the panel.
  • I miss the South!
