2013 Books by the Banks artwork Books by the Banks 2013 poster by Jeffrey Ebbeler

Join us for the 2013 Books by the Banks poster debut and celebrate the seventh year for the book festival. Every year the posters — now considered unique collectors’ items — capture the essence of what Books by the Banks means to the community.

Meet this year’s artist, Jeffrey Ebbeler, during the poster debut at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Pavilion at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 5. Following the discussion, artists from previous years will join Ebbeler in a Q&A about their work and sign posters for purchase. The cost of the new 2013 poster is $15.00, and the previous years’ posters are $10.00 each.
