Decatur Book Festival

Emory in the Community

Our collaborations at the community level advance and support local priorities.

Community Collaboration

More than a dozen offices across Emory University sharing an interest in literature and the arts join forces each year to become a major sponsor of the annual Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival. The event, which is the largest independent book festival in the country, celebrates each year by bringing authors and events to Decatur Square during Labor Day weekend.

Supporting Local Priorities

Earlier this year, the OGCA team partnered with the Admissions Office to bring DeKalb County's School Counselors to campus. We welcomed approximately 50 counselors and provided an overview of the admissions process and campus tour.
