Poster debut kickoff event to launch Books by the Banks

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Books by the Banks: Cincinnati USA Book Festival is not held until October, but the kick-off is tonight. The 2010 poster debut event is Wednesday, September 1, at 7:00 p.m., at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Rookwood Pavilion. Acclaimed illustrators John Maggard, Ryan Ostrander, C.F. Payne, and Will Hillenbrand will discuss their work and the illustrations they created exclusively for the annual Books by the Banks posters. These local artists created posters that "celebrate the joy of reading in Cincinnati." After a public discussion, all four artists will sign posters for purchase. The cost of the 2010 poster is $15 dollars, the previous years posters are $10 dollars each.

Books by the Banks: Cincinnati USA Book Festival will be held October 2 at the Duke Energy Center, in Downtown Cincinnati. Organized by the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, the University of Cincinnati Libraries, The Mercantile Library, and Joseph-Beth Booksellers, it is the joy of reading and books that brings these partners together.

More than 100 regional and national authors will be participating in Books by the Banks. Purchase books and have them signed by the authors throughout the day. Enjoy author readings and panel discussions. Visit the K12 Kids' Corner featuring costumed storybook characters, crafts, and other fun activities for families.

2010 poster creator John Maggard's highly visible mini-marathon posters have delivered exceptional artwork that exhibits a unique personality and distinguishes that particular marathon, the American Heart Association, and himself. A graduate of Miami University, he has taught illustration classes at the College of Mount St. Joseph and the Art Academy of Cincinnati and has worked in the printing, design, and publishing fields at Gibson Greetings, NCR, Steinau-Fisher Studio, and Wanamaker Advertising. He is a member of the Society of Illustrators, NYC. He lives in Terrace Park.
