I would like to extend my gratitude to Drew Wichterman at the Tipp City Public Library who did most of the heavy lifting to pull this event together.

And a big thank you to Bill Martino and his staff at the Clark County Public Library who hosted the panel at their beautiful facility in Springfield, Ohio.

And I would also like to express my appreciation to Luke Dennis at WYSO who made my participation possible.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
