October in Cincinnati means Books by the Banks, our book festival. This year I met some new authors and visited with some I had met in the past. It is always an exciting event with lots of authors and many, many books to buy. Since ours is held in October, it is a great time to pick up some gifts for the holidays as well as books for yourself.
My husband came along again this year and took some pictures and helped carry my books.
My first stop was to visit my friend Catherine McKenzie (SPIN, SPUN, ARRANGED, HIDDEN) and Jon Harrison (THE BANKS OF CERTAIN RIVERS – review to come soon).
I then met Marci Jefferson whose GIRL ON THE GOLDEN COIN is in my TBR and is begging me to read it.
Of course, I also had to stop by and say hi to Mindy McGinnis. Her first book, NOT A DROP TO DRINK, came out last year just before Books by the Banks. Her second, IN A HANDFUL OF DUST, came out just in time for “The Banks”.
A trip to “The Banks” wouldn’t be complete without picking up a few children’s books.
BABY PENGUINS EVERYWHERE! by Melissa Guion
THE FORGOTTEN PUMPKIN by Hugh G. Earnhart (review to come later this week).
Of course, there were other books in my bag but, unfortunately, those authors were not available during the time I was there.
It was a fabulous event and I can’t wait until it comes back next October.
Note: Reviews for all books will be posted as I read them.
