By Jason Boog on October 6, 2010 - GalleyCat

Author George Dawes Green will lead The Unchained Tour on a 14-stop bus tour of Georgia, rallying support for independent books stores with storytellers, musicians, and circus performers.

Green (pictured) founded The Moth storytelling events, an international series of literary performances. The Unchained Tour already has a Facebook page and a website where you can buy tickets.

Here’s more from the release: “The Unchained Tour will place four superb Moth storytellers, a musician and a circus-act aboard an old bus for a fourteen-stop tour of Georgia, on behalf of independent bookstores. Our aim is generate excitement for bookstores through live storytelling. We want to inspire people to see their local bookstore as the center of their communities, and to inspire booksellers to find new ways to gather customers.”
