UGA Press van stolen before book festival

There’s been a whodunit at the AJC Decatur Book Festival — the University of Georgia Press said Saturday that its van was stolen.

“No books,” said part of a handwritten sign at the festival.

The organization posted messages on its Twitter feed, with a description of the vehicle and the tag number: GV1588D.

Scheduled authors were still expected to participate, according to the Twitter feed.

The AJC Decatur Book Festival is the largest independent book festival in the country. An estimated 70,000 people are expected to attend.

The University of Georgia Press, founded in 1938, is the oldest and largest book publisher in the state.
