The Decatur Book Festival is totally clueless

Posted By on Fri, Jul 25, 2008 at 5:50 PM


One of the more popular features of last year's Decatur Book Festival was the giant crossword puzzle hanging at the Decatur bandstand. People lined up around the block for the chance to fill in a few blanks. Because it was such a hit, and in an effort to keep lines down, this year's DBF co-founder and director Tom Bell (and former CL contributor) has decided to have numerous crosswords hanging up at the book market street fair.

In order to keep each one different, he needs a lot of clues. That's where you come in. If you think you might have a crossword clue (and, of course, an answer to go with it), put it in a comment at his blog (do not post it here on Fresh Loaf — much as I like crosswords — because it won't be of any use to the festival).

You can provide as many clues and answers as you see fit regarding any literary-ish topic. Figurative bonus points if your clue has to do with a Georgia author or one of the authors featured at this year's festival. I imagine it'd also be appreciated if your clues varied some in difficulty. If all the crossword clues are worthy of the Saturday New York Times, the DBF could have some ornery festival-goers on its hands. Bookworms don't like feeling inferior.

The deadline to get your clues and answers in is Sun., July 27. Again, here's the link for posting.
