Dates set for 2017 Iowa City Book Festival: Oct. 8-15

While we still are hearing from people who had transformative experiences at the 2016 Iowa City Book Festival, we already are hard at work planning the 2017 fest. Get the dates on your calendar now: Oct. 8-15, 2017.

We will feature another mix of authors, events, and themes, and will again be working with several partners to offer a wide variety of programs. These will include the 2017 One Community One Book author, G. Willow Wilson (presented in partnership with Hancher Auditorium); the Examined Life conference and more. Of special note: 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the University of Iowa’s International Writing Program, and we will have several events that celebrate that milestone for this amazing program.
