Cleveland International Book Fair?

BOTC is an avid CSPAN watcher, especially on the weekends when CSPAN2 goes into Book TV mode. You can always come across an interesting author lecturing about their work.

Many of the lectures or discussions televised usually take place at book fairs around the country, like Miami, Washington DC, Austin, etc. There is no reason that there should not be a similar event here in Clevlend. Imagine an entire week of events tied to reading + text, all arrayed around University Circle in the early fall. The concept is quite compelling.

BOTC endorses the founding of such an event. It's mission melds well with other endeavors that are re-shaping our intellectual brownfield landscapes, like Ingenuity, Design City, etc.
