If you’re a bibliophile — and what rational person isn’t? — mark your calendars for Saturday, May 11, 2013, when the Ohioana Book Festival returns to the Fort Hayes campus in downtown Columbus.
This year, the Festival features a great list of featured authors from the Buckeye state, as well as dozens of different festival authors, poets, and artists who will be participating in the activities. Once again, the Festival will confirm the remarkable depth and breadth of talent to be found in this little corner of the world. And although the program schedule has yet to be announced, you can be sure that there will be interesting presentations by authors, thought-provoking panel discussions, and some quirky moments leavened with humor — because that’s what you tend to get when you bring together highly creative people.
I’ll be volunteering at the Festival again this year. Last year, I was an “information volunteer,” which gave me a chance to harangue incoming guests are some of the great events. If you’re interested in volunteering, you can find more information here.
I hope to see some of our readers and friends at the 2013 Ohioana Book Festival!
