Kudos to the Blue Manatee!

The blue manatee press will receive the Cooper Award during Ohioana 2018, a special event honoring Hamilton County authors, presented by the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

The event takes place on April 8 at 1:30 p.m. at the Main Library (800 Vine St.).  Readers can meet and chat with local authors like Emma Carlson Berne, David Pepper, Jan Serbin and Jessica Strawser.

Dr. John Hutton of the blue manatee press will accept the Cooper Award, given to an individual or organization who has made outstanding contributions to the promotion of books and reading in Hamilton County.  Past winners include local faves like Loren Long and Will Hillenbrand.
