Y Bridge Arts Festival ZanesvilleWe are partnering with the Y-Bridge Arts Festival to provide an author’s signing and book sales booth on August 3rd and 4th in Zanesville, Ohio.

The Y-Bridge Arts Festival has graciously invited us to facilitate a presence for authors and the written word.

This year we will offer books by Ohio authors for sale, as well as schedule an hour per author for book signings.

If you would like to sell your book at the booth, please send us an email at You do not need to be an OWA member to participate. Interested authors must respond by 7/20.

The Husband by Aaron Daniel BehrAaron Behr, OWA Author, and author of The Husband (find it on Amazon here), has volunteered to facilitate the booth. Thanks to Aaron’s service, authors will only need to be present during their book signing hour.
