Hello to our Ohioana friends and family! Hope you are doing well and taking time to read lots of great books by Ohioans, about Ohio, or both!
We’re re-animating the Ohioana blog and will provide weekly updates on all things Ohioana:
• The 2017 Book Festival
• Other Ohioana events
• Oldies but goodies from the collection
• The latest from Ohio authors
• Book-related events from around the state
There’s no shortage of topics here at Ohioana. A quick trip to the stacks or a glance at the new books provides all the fodder we need to generate ideas. For example, we’ll be honoring Black History Month as well as observing Valentine’s Day in February. Spring is just around the corner and Ohioana is well-fortified with books on plants and nature, so we’ll see what we can share with you in March. The Ohioana Book Festival is on April 8 this year, and we’ll have updates and follow-ups on the blog.
The blog also gives us a chance to give some love to our friends, like the fine folks at the Book Loft (our bookseller for 2017) and our friends at the new Gramercy Books in Bexley. We’ll also revisit the current issue of the Ohioana Quarterly just as a reminder in case you haven’t had a chance to read it.
And we want to hear from you! Want to say “hi” and tell us what’s up? Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you again next week!
