On Saturday, September 24th, the library hosted its first IDB Virtual Book Festival. It was a great time filled with all things books and reading.
We started the morning with an excellent visit and discussion with author, Reid Forgrave. He is the author of Love, Zac: Small-town football and the life and death of an American boy. A true story of Zac Easter, a young man from small-town Iowa who took his own life rather than continue his losing battle against the traumatic brain injuries (CTE) he sustained playing high school football. A special thank you to Mr. Forgrave. His book is available in audio and Braille.
There were also sessions on; creating an Iowa audiobook, ideas for your reading toolbox, how a braille book goes from print to shelf and Ready, Set, Adventure! our youth summer reading program. We ended the morning with a live recording of our Library Chat podcast.
It was a great time filled with all things books and reading. Thanks to all that attended!
