The Ohioana Book Festival is a celebration of Ohio-based authors, and takes place Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center. This is the 6th year for the event, and it will feature nearly 100 authors covering a variety of genres, across both fiction and non-fiction. There will be live music, food carts, exhibits, and author readings. You can meet your favorite writers, get your books autographed, and chat with them in an informal atmosphere.
And best of all, it’s free to attend, and parking is free as well.
The 2012 Featured Authors are:
Jeni Britton Bauer
Cinda Williams Chima
Donald Ray Pollock
Michael J. Rosen
I’ll be one of the guests at the festival, and I’m also participating in a panel at 2:15 pm titled “Young Adult Fiction – For Tweens & Teens.” There will be a ton of other panels, workshops, and author readings as well. Plus, children’s activities. Check out the website for all the details.
Hope to see some of you there.
