    • Good afternoon, David. Yes, it’s too late to be considered participation as either a Featured Author or Regional Writer for 2018. To be considered for 2019, please contact Ken Smoke at with more information about yourself and we’ll send you details on how to apply. Looking forward to hearing from you!


  1. This will be my first festival. Will all authors sign after the Headliner event or just the ones listed in the schedule? Also, do I have to purchase books at the festival for signings or can I bring my own? Thanks!


    • Good afternoon, Janie! Good question! Please consult the “Book Signings” schedule at the very bottom of the Program Schedule for the times and authors who will be signing books at those times. All book signings will be at The Community House…WITH TWO EXCEPTIONS:

      1) Sonny Seals and George S. Hart who will be holding their book signing immediately following their presentation, “Historic Rural Churches of Georgia” Saturday at 12:30pm in the Church Sanctuary (Program is Saturday, March 24, 2018, 11:30am-12:30pm, Church Sanctuary).

      2) Vince Dooley will have his book signing immediately after his presentation, “The Legion’s Fighting Bulldog”, Sunday at 2:30pm in the WOW Building (Program is Sunday, March 25, 2018, 1:30-2:30pm, WOW Building).

      I’m sure the authors won’t mind signing a book of theirs that you’ve already purchased, so please bring it.

      I hope this was helpful! Thank you for your interest in attending the DLF! Looking forward to seeing you soon!

      Ken Smoke
