Toledoan wins Ohioana Book Award

Toledo native Marcus Jackson was honored with an Ohioana Book Award in the poetry category for his book Pardon My Heart, a poetry collection that focuses on the Great Migration— the movement of African Americans from the south to the north and west starting in the early 1900s. Jackson, a University of Toledo alum and instructor in Ohio State’s MFA program, will be honored at a ceremony in the Ohio Statehouse on October 17. The Ohioana Book Awards have been honoring Ohio’s literary talent— Toni Morrison and James Thurber among them— since 1942.
