Best Local Book Publisher
Taylor Speed

One of the nation’s most exciting literary publishers is based here in Cincinnati. Acre Books, an offshoot of The Cincinnati Review, shares incredibly thoughtful, award-winning works of poetry and fiction that have garnered praise and awards from the industry’s top minds. Edited by Nicola Mason, Acre Books publishes genre-bending hybrid works of prose and poetry, such as Matthew Kirkpatrick’s The Ambrose J. and Vivian T. Seagrave Museum of 20th Century American Art, an intriguing mystery told through museum exhibit labels for fictional works of art. Visual artists in a collaborative exhibit at DAAP Galleries interpreted the book so fans could see the made-up artworks in real life. Keep an eye on Acre Books’ catalog, there’s a lot of intensely good writing to be found. Acre Books, 248 McMicken Hall, University of Cincinnati, 2600 Clifton Ave., Clifton Heights, acre-books.com.
