2013 Augusta Literary Festival


The Augusta Literary Festival (ALF) was designed with the community in mind. It doesn’t matter if you are involved with the community of the Arts, community of book lovers, community of aspiring writers, or the community at large; this is your event. Since Augusta, Georgia has seen such tremendous growth since the new millennium, it was only natural that it should host its own literary festival. The AFL looks to be the preeminent cultural event, that keeps pace with the bustling literary scene in the Central Savannah Region Area. As Augusta grows, so will the ALF. Above all, we should remember that the primary purpose of both the ALF and the Augusta Public Library System, is to promote literacy and education.

The Education of Nia Simone Bijou by Eric Jerome Dickey

NSB Eric Jerome Dickey, author of fourteen New York Times bestselling novels, imagines the formative college years of one of his most popular heroines, Nia Simone Bijou. From her first days at Virginia’s Hampton University, impressionable, creative Nia falls smitten with Chris Eidos Alleyne, an athlete and a scholar.

“Love is sweet nothings and beautiful promises,” Nia writes in her journal. What her girlfriends know, and her mother doesn’t, is that Chris’s expression of love is deeply physical. Wielding powerful charisma, Chris soon has Nia abandoning innocence for experience.

Believing that Chris will reward her sacrifices with lifelong commitment, Nia thrills to her newfound pleasures. She knows in her heart that each act of intimacy draws them ever closer. But when the Big Man on Campus learns to take what is freely given, without regard to love, Nia finds herself newly enrolled in Heartbreak 101.

The Education of Nia Simone Bijou is a rousing tale of youthful passion, once kindled, never extinguished. This Penguin Special includes a preview of Decadence, coming April 2013.
