Books By The Banks
The Eighth Annual Books By The Banks Cincinnati USA Book Festival will be held Saturday, October 11 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati.
Along with more than 100 authors who will talk with patrons and sign copies of their books, there will be author panels and discussions; a kids zone with a variety of fun activities and entertainment; sponsor booths; and an onsite bookstore from Joseph Beth Booksellers.
This event is free to attend, and runs from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.
This is a big year for WVXU at Books by the Banks! Mark Perzel will be there to meet you and talk about our new book show, The Book Club @91.7. You may even be asked to answer some questions about your favorite books to air on the show. (The first episode airs that morning at 7am on 91.7, 88.5 WMUB and on wvxu.org - tune in!)
At 1pm, our own Jim Nolan (Local Exposure), will moderate the Local Food and Drink author panel with Molly Wellmann and Dan Wright. At 2pm, Mark will moderate the John Scalzi author talk, so make sure you stop in to these sessions and meet these wonderful authors.
The list of confirmed authors and other event details can be found at booksbythebanks.org.
Some of this year's participating authors have been guests on WVXU's local shows, Around Cincinnati or Cincinnati Edition. Here are links to their interviews you can enjoy before meeting them in person on October 11...just click on their name!
