I love this festival! It starts with free parking in the attached library parking garage. It is a great way to connect with Ohio authors. There are authors who are on the spectrum of self-publishing, to having agents, to having their own publishing company. I was surprised at the number of bestselling authors who were in attendance. I observed published authors encouraging other authors who have not yet published their work. They also passed on information about writing groups. This festival is a great place to connect and hopefully find your next best read.
