The pieces included in The Cincinnati Anthology--essays, art, and photography alike--are all about the city of Cincinnati, its present and its past, its transition and its legacy. They are about what currently defines this city and distinguishes it from other cities, what makes us love it and what makes some eventually leave it. It is an anthology of pieces on genealogy and geology, race and progress, and experiences from the suburbs to Over-the-Rhine. The Cincinnati Anthology includes written contributions from David Bottoms, Garrett Cummins, David Falk, Rebecca Morgan Frank, Jack Heffron, Polk Laffoon IV, Katie Laur, Sam LeCure, Tifanei Ressl-Moyer, Over The Rhine, Alex Schutte, Curtis Sittenfeld, Brian Trapp, Jenny Ustick, Sarah Wesseler, and Kate Westrich.
