Decatur Book Festival/Prosper Redding Tour

Children's Stage at Decatur Recreation Center presented by Decatur Education Foundation

Sunday, 1:30-2:00

Happy families are all alike, every cursed family is cursed in its own way. Whether it's a vindictive demon, familiar fairy tale characters intent on destruction, or a streak of familial bad luck caused by a creature of the swamp, the determined protagonists of Cassie Beasley's Tumble and Blue, Alexandra Bracken's The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding , and Michael Buckley's Sisters Grimm series are ready to change their fates. Every family has its problems, but it gets a lot more complicated when there's a curse involved!
