Come Meet Me in Cincinnati: Books by the Banks, Joseph Beth, and the Kenton County Library (Erlanger, KY)

It's a busy fall to say the least and there are a lot of good writing events happening before the holidays land. (I've already blogged about how I will be in Tucson, AZ, Sept. 24-26.) If you live in the Greater Cincinnati area, think about popping by to one of the following events.
