The Buckeye Book Fair has a mission to promote professional Ohio writers, illustrators, and photographers and to support Ohio literacy projects. The organization works exclusively with Ohio writers and artists and actively organizes literary programs throughout the state.

Our annual book fair is a showcase for Ohio's influence in literature and is a fundraiser for the organization and our literacy outreach. Over 1,200 Ohio writers and illustrators have been featured in the Buckeye Book Fair since its inception in 1987.


How Are Authors Selected?

Authors participate by invitation only and most authors are sought out by the book fair organizers. Authors must have a new book published and, after receiving their invitation, will be able to sign up to participate in Buckeye Book Fair's literacy outreach programs.
