Ohio Central South Region was once again a partner with the Ohioana Book Festival in downtown Columbus, April 14, 2018. Our members created coloring pages and volunteered in the children’s room and manned a table for interested writers and illustrators in the community. Twenty of our members appeared at the festival– signing books, speaking on panels, and meeting with teens in the teen room!

Plus, a shout out to the lovely Cinda Williams Chima. Okay, technically, she is an Ohio Northern SCBWI member… but as Cinda mentioned, her son went to OSU, so that sort of makes her an Ohio Central South member, right?
