Ohioana Book Festival featuring Nita Sweeney and Other Ohio Authors

Friday, August 28th, Saturday, August 29th, and Sunday, August 30th

I’m so excited to have been selected as one of the 2020 Ohioana Book Festival authors. Join me and the fabulous other authors for one of Ohio’s most popular literary happenings!

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the 2020 Book Festival will be held ONLINE Friday, August 28 through Sunday, August 30, 2020. It is a FREE event. See the Ohioana announcement here.

While all of us are disappointed to not be able to meet in person, I commend Ohioana Library Association for the care and consideration they took in making the difficult but responsible decision to hold the Book Festival online. I hope readers will recognize the unusual circumstances and embrace this year’s format. We get to chat among ourselves and still stay safe!

My booksDepression Hates a Moving Target and You Should Be Writing will be sold at the event.

Since its inception in 2007, the Book Festival has given readers the opportunity to connect with their favorite Ohio writers. The Festival welcomes roughly 100 authors and more than 3,000 visitors every year.

Find the full list of Book Festival authors including photos and bios here.

Stay tuned for full details and check the Ohioana Page and Facebook page for full details on panels, scheduling, and access.

I recognize failure—which is important; some people don’t—and fix it.”
