The three authors of the 2022 All Iowa Reads titles will appear in virtual visits starting this week. The State Library of Iowa is sponsoring these conversations to give Iowans a chance to hear from the All Iowa Reads authors. The author presentations are free and open to the public, but note that registration is required.
At each event, the authors will be joined by a moderator to discuss their books, their creative process, and to address questions from the virtual audience. Attendees will have the option to submit a question ahead of time when registering; otherwise people are encouraged to ask questions in chat during the event. Reading any of the three 2022 All Iowa Reads titles in advance is encouraged, but not required.

About All Iowa Reads
Established in 2003, the purpose of All Iowa Reads is to foster a sense of unity through reading. Iowans are encouraged to come together in their communities to read and talk about a single book title in the same calendar year. All Iowa Reads consists of three programs, each with one title chosen per year: adults, teens ages 12-18, and kids ages 8-12.
All Iowa Reads is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of Iowa.
