It’s that time of year again. Tens of thousands of people are descending upon Decatur Square and surrounding streets for the annual Decatur Book Festival. Authors from all over are set to read passages from their newest tomes, answer questions and speak on life. There are cooking demonstrations from some of the best chefs around, children’s activities and hundreds of thousands of books available for purchase on any subject matter imaginable. The festival runs the rest of today, Sept. 3, and Sunday, Sept. 4, from noon until 6 p.m.
