When the Decatur Book Festival launched back in 2006, founder Daren Wang remembers thinking that if 10,000 people attended, “we would have hit it out of the park.” More than four times as many showed up.

The agenda in 2021 and 2022 was less ambitious. And when the DBF board announced its decision to cancel the 2023 festival, it wasn’t a complete surprise.
