Here are some of the local book events during the month of June in the Atlanta area. I basically scout around various sites looking for what interests me and provide the links. (I purposely don't include the details, in case there is a last minute change of schedule, etc.)
Andy Cohen, author of Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture will be at the Savannah College of Art And Design on Wednesday, June 6th ($10 admission or free with book purchase).
On Thursday, June 14th, Jen Marlowe, author of The Hour of Sunlight, will read and sign books at the Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater. Other authors visiting the Carter Library in the month of June include Thom Reilly (Rethinking Public Sector Compensation: What Ever Happened to the Public Interest?) on June 21st and Leonard Pitts (Freeman) on Monday, June 25th.

Book Sales Worth Mentioning
The First Baptist Church of Decatur will be having their huge yard sale on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 7-9. Of course, their are many household items, but they usually have boxes upon boxes of books for sale as well. Also note that the Georgia Antiquarian Book Sale originally scheduled for Saturday, June 9th and Sunday, June 10th has been moved to the weekend of September 23rd.
