One of the most exciting opportunities at OLC Convention and Expo is meeting nationally renowned authors face-to-face in a library-focused environment. This year, the OLC Program Committee has put together a star-studded lineup of authors and keynote speakers.
This year, the OLC programming committee has put together a star-studded lineup of authors and keynote speakers. After you hear from authors like beloved YA author and speaker, Jason Reynolds, and Ohio’s very own Hanif Abdurraqib (recent winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant), Margaret Peterson Haddix (The Missing series and The Shadow Children series), Jeni Britton (Jeni’s Ice Cream), and Saeed Jones (How We Fight for Our Lives), among others, head toward the Convention Bookstore for a signing and meet-and-greet with the author. The Convention Bookstore will be run by beloved local independent bookstore The Book Loft, so we encourage you to check it out! Books signings will take place just outside the Exhibit Hall (Regency Ballroom, 3rd Floor).
Members of the OLC Local Arrangements committee will be on-site to make the process smooth and COVID-aware. We ask for all attendees’ patience and understanding as we will be working with each author individually on the day to see if they will be available for photos with attendees or signings only.
The complete schedule of the authors and their signing times is available on the OLC website.
