I picked up this book at the 2019 #Ohioanabookfestival after listening to a panel that included Ms. Loewenstein. The setting was so unusual, that I had to read it! It was beautifully written and I felt like I could feel the dirt and dust on my skin. I hope more people pick up this great historical mystery set in 1930s Oklahoma.

The boys #haul from the #OhioanaBookFestival They made a few crafts, and happily took offers of all free candy (mysteriously not available for the photo). There was a great selection of children‘s titles and activities. The author‘s were also very good with the kids. Thanks for the cool bookmarks @cobwebmoth

stacybmartin What a great haul! 7mo
rretzler Cover to Cover is a great bookstore. Haven‘t been there in ages - my boys have outgrown unfortunately. 😢 7mo
cobwebmoth I'm glad they had a nice time. It looks like they got some great stuff.❤ Thank you for the bookmarks and book plates! 7mo

Getting an autographed copy to add to our collections. Big brother walked around the entire festival before coming back here to choose his book. #OhioanaBookFestival

Reviewsbylola I did the same thing and still ended up spending way more than I anticipated. 😆 7mo
Chelleo @Reviewsbylola LOL!!! I kept strict to one book each for both boys and I opted to buy bookish gift wrap from the gift shop! 7mo
Reviewsbylola That was smart! I bought both my kids a nice book for their birthdays and then some much cheaper books for now. 😆 7mo
Sarahandhella My preschoolers love the Dino- series!! 7mo

Kahiki Supper Club: A Polynesian Paradise in Columbus | David Meyers, Elise Meyers Walker, Jeff Chenault, Doug Motz
post image

If you‘re from Columbus, you‘ll remember the Kahiki Supper Club. It was a restaurant like no other. We always went for birthdays and would cook our own meatballs over mini fires and order the smoking drinks. It was torn down over 15 years ago to build a Walgreens and I‘m still not over it. 😭

#anotheronebitesthedust #anglophileapril

AlaMich It sounds like it was a lot of fun, like a tiki theme. 8mo
ravenlee Kahiki was my homecoming dinner sophomore year of high school. Also, when I was about 10 and moving to Columbus, random girl in my dance class told me about this place she couldn‘t remember by name but it has fish on the walls and everybody goes there - years later we figured out it was Kahiki. 8mo
cherinium It was such a landmark, it was terrible to see it razed. 8mo

rretzler I loved Kahiki and still miss it too! There is a new tiki restaurant in Powell that I‘ve been meaning to try, but I‘m sure it will not be able to compare with Kahiki! 8mo
Mdargusch I love that there are kahiki fans on Litsy!!! @ravenlee @cherinium @rretzler 8mo
rretzler @Mdargusch @ravenlee @cherinium @Reviewsbylola It makes me wonder how many Littens are in the Columbus area. I live in Dublin, but have been in Columbus since 1981 - originally from Wintersville, OH, a small town in eastern OH near the Ohio River. 8mo
ravenlee @rretzler I‘m not in Columbus anymore. I left Ohio 15 years ago and have been back just a handful of times since, but we lived in Gahanna from ‘91-mid ‘00s and my dad still has family scattered around town. I think there‘s been an Ohio Litten meet-up - @Chelleo did you set that up? 8mo
Chelleo @ravenlee @rretzler Yes, I did and we have another #OhioLitsyMeetup scheduled for this coming Saturday at the #OhioanaBookFestival We‘re meeting in the Cafe of the Columbus Metropolitan Library at 9:30am. 8mo
ravenlee Thanks, @Chelleo - that sounds like fun. Hope you all have a great time! 8mo
cherinium @rretzler I am also not in Columbus anymore. I grew up in Franklin (near Dayton), went to college in Findlay (spending my summers in Columbus), then moved to Columbus. I stayed in Columbus until my husband took a job in St. Louis in 2012. I miss it tremendously. 8mo
emilyhaldi So tragic 😭 8mo
