Signing event of 'Sleep is for the Weak' at a book festival in Georgia (with our stickers!)

Few weeks ago we wrote about our collaboration with BlogHer's first book "Sleep is for the Weak," edited by Rita Arens (http://surrenderdorothy.typepad.com) and starring 23 bloggers. This weekend we're celebrating the book's first signing event, where a tree will be planted for every book sold there! And it all happens in a great book festival in Georgia.

Just to remind you, 'Sleep is for the Weak' (Chicago Review Press, September 2008) brings together the best parenting essays written by the most talented mommybloggers in the blogosphere. The anthology provides clever, humorously true stories every parent can relate to, and tackles issues that many mothers and fathers face but are reluctant to discuss.

Here are the details of the event:

On Saturday, August 30, Kristen Chase (motherhooduncensored.net) and Mir Kamin (wouldashoulda.com), contributors of 'Sleep is for the Weak' will promote their book in reading and signing at the Deactur Book Festival in Decatur, GA. The event will take place from 11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church - 205 Sycamore St., Decatur, GA 30030 (that's the smaller of two spaces the church building has, not the main sanctuary).

Kristen and Mir will talk, read, and take questions for 45 minutes. Immediately following, they'll do a book sale & signing, provided by Charis Books & More (www.charisbooksandmore.com) just outside the chapel. . This event is free and open to the public.

As I mentioned, a tree will be planted with Eco-Libris for every copy sold at the event, and buyers will also receive with their signed copy our sticker (made of recycled paper) saying "One tree planted for this book".

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival Presented by DeKalb Medical is the largest independent book festival in the country and one of the 10 largest overall. Each year, more than 250 authors and 50,000 festival goers crowd the historic downtown Decatur square to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children’s area, live music, parades, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and more.

You can also find much more information on the website (www.decaturbookfestival.com), particularly here: http://www.decaturbookfestival.com/2008/About-DBF/index.php

So don't miss this event on this great festival, enjoy the book and get some sleep :-)

Thanks for coordinating this, Raz -- I received the stickers today, so at least 100 folks who buy a copy at DBF will get one! :)
