Writer-in-Residence Program

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County
Cincinnati, Ohio

In 2014 The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County hosted their first Writer-in-Residence, Kathy Y. Wilson.  Wilson participated in panels, events, and lead workshops for children and adults.  The library explains, "Kathy Y. Wilson is no stranger to the public library. She first felt the desire to write at the age 5, wandering the stacks of her neighborhood library. 'I knew the alphabet, and I would stand up in those stacks and try and figure out where Wilson would go,' she says. 'I knew where the Ws were, and I would imagine where my book would be. The Library is the great equalizer of this community. I am so honored to represent this institution'."
