Diversity Panel
Diversity Panel

Great selection of authors, interesting discussion panels and you can’t beat the location. Downtown Decatur is a fabulous mix of trendy shops and yummy restaurants. I will be going back to Cafe Alsace for the eggs Benedict and the ridiculously delicious honey-lavender ice cream.

Enjoy the notes!
