Book festival
(WOUB) -
A book published by Ohio University Press was the inspiration for a festival in Columbus Saturday -- The Ohioana Book Festival.

The book is called "Good Roots: Writers Reflect on Growing up in Ohio".

O-U Press publicist Jeff Kallet says 19 contributors wrote essays and poems for the book.

Nine of the contributors were supposed to participate in the festival...along with book critics and publishers...for a discussion of writing, publishing, and growing up in Ohio.

The Ohioana Book Festival was sponsored by the Ohioana Library...which hopes to make it an annual event
