What’s New for 2022?

We are excited to announce that the 2022 Book Fair is going to be breathtaking. The coming year marks the 35th Anniversary of our cherished Fair. What started out as a support initiative for Ohio Authors through The Daily Record Newspaper (Wooster, Ohio) in 1986 became a staple of Ohio Book Lovers. To celebrate the perseverance of hundreds of volunteers, readers, and authors & illustrators in Ohio, The Buckeye Book Fair will spotlight its oral tradition, bring intimate conversations with authors to additional areas, and offer early fair submission and reviews. Literacy changes peoples’ lives by opening the mind and heart of the reader. We are fortunate to see students and families holding new books and we realize the stories of the past. Our hope is to collect, celebrate, and share these stories with you during our anniversary year. Will you please join us and share your memory?

As the holiday season warms you with joy, our hope is that the stories you’ve come to love will bring renewal to mind and carry you into the new year. We’re looking forward to celebrating with you in 2022.
