The Buckeye Book Fair has a mission to promote professional Ohio writers, illustrators, and photographers and the book industry that has invested in them and their works. Our annual book fair is a showcase for Ohio's influence in literature and is a fundraiser for the organization and our literacy outreach.

The annual Buckeye Book Fair is a full-day event featuring nearly 100 Ohio authors and illustrators who meet with readers and autograph copies of their latest works. Over 1,200 Ohio writers and illustrators have been featured in the Buckeye Book Fair since its inception in 1987.
