This anthology brings together some of Cincinnati’s most notable residents, native sons and daughters, creatives, and contemplators to tell tales of a city’s triumphs and tribulations through essays, artwork, and photography. The work reflects the complexity of the city: its present and its past, its transition and its legacy; what defines it and distinguishes it; what makes us love it and what makes some eventually leave it. It is an anthology on genealogy and geology, race and progress, and experiences from the suburbs to Over-the-Rhine. Included are contributions from John Curley, Cedric Michael Cox, Scott Devendorf, David Falk, Rebecca Morgan Frank, Jack Heffron, Polk Laffoon IV, Katie Laur, Sam LeCure, Over the Rhine, Curtis Sittenfeld, Michael Wilson, and many more.
Praise for The Cincinnati Anthology:
“A deft, well-considered collection of essays, illustrations and photographs that represents...‘the visions of those who have fallen madly in love with the city of Cincinnati, either for the first time or all over again.’” Cincinnati CityBeat
