The 2012 Ohioana Book Festival will be held on May 12, 2012 at the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center. If you been to one of the prior book festivals, I know I’ll see you again this year. If you’ve never been to one, and you like reading, give it a shot — I’m confident you will have some fun.
The 2012 Festival offers an eclectic mix of featured authors whose works run the gamut from Tom Batiuk’s classic Funky Winkerbean comic series to Jeni Britton Bauer’s delicious ice cream recipes to Donald Ray Pollock’s tales from Knockemstiff, Ohio — and everything in between. You’ll have a chance to interact with the authors, listen to readings from lots of writers, buy books, and experience firsthand the vibrant literary community found in the Buckeye State.
The Book Festival is free and open to the public — which inevitably means we need volunteers to help make the event run smoothly. I’ll be there, and I hope you’ll consider joining me. If you’re interested, information about volunteer opportunities is available here. Me? I’ll gladly do whatever they ask me to do.
