Manuel Iris, Poet Emeritus of Cincinnati, Ohio


“It was a beautiful celebration of hope, creativity, and community, in a time when society desperately needs them ."

Ronald V. Williams

"Last year was a melting pot of the most creative minds in the tristate. I was happy to be included on the who's who list amongst local authors." 

Kendra Spencer

"Last year's fair was amazing. I met some really dope individuals, heard great pointers from those in the publishing industry that are doing it how I aspire to."

The 3rd Annual Black Book Fair on Saturday, October 21, 2023 is postponed due to a family emergency and the formation of our Publishing School. 

AEC's Black Book Fair

To create cultural inclusion in publishing, increase the representation of black voices, and create equity of BIPOC stories by making them

more accessible to the community.
