With local author Kristy High
From the article in Hyde Park Living, January/February 2023, entitled:
Queen City Book Bank Inspires Connected Literacy Community
Local children's book authors. Kristy High and Connie Dow, made the
day even more special, donating some of their own brand-new books and signing them for quests who visited. Both of these women are amazing ambassadors promoting liteeracy in our community and the QCBB was thrilled to have them join in the celebratory Day.
Thank you, Cincinnati Book Bank, for all the great work you do, getting books into the hands of children!
