An Exciting Opportunity to Visit the Ohioana Book Festival and Become More Involved with OPA

OPA is looking for 2-3 member volunteers to help staff its table at the Ohioana Book Festival on April 23, 2016, from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Sheraton Columbus at Capitol Square. Duties would include:

           - Helping to set up and tear down the OPA table

-          - Greeting visitors who stop by the OPA table

-          - Talking to people about the benefits of joining OPA

-          - Passing out OPA literature

-          - Selling OPA publications

-          - Keeping the table presentable

-          - Enjoying yourself

The Ohioana Book Festival is an annual event which boasts more than 3,000 visitors who come to meet writers and poets from across Ohio. It is a fun-filled day with more than 120 Ohio writers onsite (including ten featured authors), panel discussions, special activities for children and teens, a book fair, and more! The book festival offers something for every reader of every age—and it’s FREE! Visit the Ohioana website to learn more. 

We are hoping to get enough volunteers so that those who staff the table can trade off duties so that everyone can check out all the books, and attend readings, panel discussions, and book signing. It’s a great opportunity to meet other writers from Ohio, to become involved with OPA, and to learn more about the art and craft of writing.

If interested in learning more about this exciting opportunity, please contact Chuck Salmons, President, at by no later than April 15.
