What next for the Atlanta African American BookFest?

I am sending good wishes to Ferai Caldwell who organised this year’s  festival but afterwards sent an email to all participants saying that the event was no more.

A successful, well-attended, buzzy event was visible on social media.  Participants posted clips of authors sitting at their stands while readers milled around.  The email suggested that a lack of money caused the event to go awry.  Mr Caldwell might have needed a few generous sponsors to keep the show on the road.  I don’t think this is the end of the story.
