Bee Nahmias tries to identify a weed that has been growing in her yard by looking through a book on plant life during the AJC Decatur Book Festival on Saturday, August 30, 2014. The ninth annual event saw tens of thousands of people come out to the downtown Decatur area to meet with world-class authors, illustrators, editors, publishers, booksellers, and artists for a weekend filled with literature, music, food, art, and fun.

The Decatur Book Festival will be here soon, and organizers still need volunteers to help with a multitude of tasks.

“Spanning Sept. 4 through Sept. 6, the Decatur Book Festival offers a variety of volunteer opportunities; everything from assisting at speaker venues, to dressing up as characters from children’s stories, to helping with the setup and breakdown of the event,” DBF Executive Director Daren Wang said.

Wang provided the following information about how to sign up to become a DBF volunteer:
