Where book lovers connect 
Greetings, Fellow Author!

Over the years, scores of authors and hundreds of book lovers have experienced the Dayton Book Expo (DBE). Now, it's your turn to enjoy literary fun at our fourth annual event.
Our dedicated book lovers are looking forward to meeting you. This means an opportunity for you to showcase and autograph your books. The all-day event - which is free and open to the public - includes panel discussions for aspiring authors, activities for children at the Kidz Zone, spoken word and book signings!
To express our appreciation for your commitment to literacy in Dayton, we're offering an incentive registration through December 1, 2012. If you're an author, you don't want to miss your opportunity to connect with hundreds of avid book lovers.
Can't wait to see you!
