Booklovers from near and afar come together to “celebrate the joy of reading and books.” Just like many great books, a sequel often follows. This one just happens annually featuring about 80 plus national and regional authors and the organizers and sponsors who brought them together to participate in the annual Books by the Banks: Cincinnati USA Book Festival.

To get a good read on this year’s book festival, one need only look at what makes it so “novel.” There’s no charge to get in, yet, nowhere else in the region will book lovers find so many noteworthy authors all in one place, all on the same day! attendees can have their favorite books signed from their choice of 80 plus well-known writers and illustrators in the large author pavilion. They can also take in fascinating author panel discussions featuring topics like sports, local history, cooking (demos), and music (as well as the chance to hear their favorite authors speak about their works) in the adjoining meeting rooms. Families can enjoy activities including visits with costumed storybook characters, children’s author readings, music, and fun crafts in the Target Kids’ Corner.
