“The virtual format allows us to present a broader than usual selection of authors, including some with national reputations, many of whom might otherwise be unable to travel to Dayton,” said Friedman. “A few examples include Steven Levy, Alan Zweibel and Stephanie Butnick (among others). The format also allows CABS to endure through the winter and into spring without fear of snowstorms. It facilitates providing some events in partnership with other organizations. Attendees may ask questions through Zoom chat and, in many cases, may receive author-signed bookplates for purchased books. The events promise to be interesting and enjoyable.”
