 Dayton Book Expo, connecting book lovers since 2010!

Dayton Book Expo Keep Literacy Alive Campaign

In an effort to meet this goal, Dayton Book Expo hosts an annual literary event to promote literacy in the Dayton Metropolitan Area. By providing the region’s premier book event, Dayton Book Expo has earned international recognition attracting authors from as far as Canada and partners from Uganda.

Since its 2010 inception, Dayton Book Expo has hosted more than 500 authors, thousands of book lovers and millions of media impressions. Because we have been so successful in this endeavor, we have secured the support of sponsors and community partners including Sinclair College, Dayton Metro Library, Antioch University Midwest, Indiana Wesleyan University, Dayton Convention Center and various media outlets.
