Getting Ready for College in Decatur, Georgia
College-finding guidebook featured at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2016.
“We study colleges and have been doing it for a couple of decades. And still, we learn something new in almost every podcast episode we do. The world of college is changing all the time. How can parents possibly navigate the college world without some help?”
At the 10th AJC Decatur Book Festival, LitFire Publishing featured How To Find the Right College: A Workbook for Parents of High School Students, written by K–12 and higher education experts Regina Paul and Marie Segares. The event was held on September 2–4, 2016, at 101 E. Court Square, Decatur, Georgia.
The workbook is designed to guide parents and their teenagers through the complicated world of researching and applying to colleges, taking into account the “deal breakers” that parents and teenagers might encounter. The book weighs the pros and cons of public and private colleges and universities, two- and four-year colleges, liberal arts and specialized colleges, single-sex colleges, faith-based colleges, historically black colleges and universities, study abroad options, and more.
Paul and Segares, co-hosts of USACollegeChat, a free weekly podcast for parents and teenagers, commented, “We study colleges and have been doing it for a couple of decades. And still, we learn something new in almost every podcast episode we do. The world of college is changing all the time. How can parents possibly navigate the college world without some help?”
To better equip your high schooler for the future, How To Find the Right College is your go-to book. College selection can be a complex maze, but it doesn’t have to be—if you have the right road map.
More than 1,000 world-class authors and hundreds of thousands of festival-goers participated in the AJC festival this year.
