Cincinnati USA Book Festival

Love books? Check out the 6th annual Books by the Banks, taking place Saturday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Duke Energy Convention Center (525 Elm St., downtown). This FREE festival features more than 100 national, regional and local authors signing their books and answering your questions.

Get in on panel discussions on cooking, history, sports, fiction and travel, and bring the kids for the Kids’ Corner, presented by The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation. Kids can meet storybook characters, enjoy music and story times, arts and crafts, and visit with favorite children’s authors and illustrators like Loren Long, Tad Hills, and Barney Salzberg.
