Without the support of our volunteer community, the Iowa City Book Festival could not host authors and book-lovers from across the state and around the country. All of the volunteer shifts are on Saturday, Oct. 6, in downtown Iowa City.

Opportunities include:

  • Chalking the Iowa City Lit Walk
  • Festival Set-up & Tear Down
  • Information Booth Attendants
  • Venue Hosts*

*Venue Hosts are asked to welcome authors, introduce readers/panelists, provide basic AV assistance, count attendance, and ensure program remains on schedule. Festival staff will provide a script for each venue host. Venue hosts must be proficient and comfortable reading and speaking English in a public setting.
