Books by the Banks is thrilled to have the Cincinnati Opera appearing in the Kids’ Corner with an 11am performance of “Let’s Cook Up An Opera.” In this high-energy show, audiences will learn about all of the ingredients that make up an opera. A cast of lively young singers will stir things up with clever narration and savory musical selections. A fun introduction to the art form, “Let’s Cook Up an Opera” will leave children inspired—and ready for seconds!
The cast features soprano Samantha Stinson, mezzo-soprano Audrey Walstrom, tenor Jonathan Zeng, and baritone Nick Ward. The show is directed by Omer Ben Seadia, with accompaniment by Carol Walker.

One of the goals of this year’s Books by the Banks is to offer more for teens and young adults who come to the festival. While we have always offered plenty of authors with books geared towards the interests of adults and children, this time there will be more books than ever before for the teen/young adult (YA) reader. Among the 100+ authors being featured, there will be 17 writers who have penned teen/YA fiction and nonfiction, including Gene Luen Yang’s Boxer’s and Saints, Liz Coley’s Pretty Girl-13, and Ellen Schreiber’s Full Moon Kisses. A full list of teen/YA authors is online.
