A list of more than 100 authors who live and write in Iowa is now available electronically on the Iowa Center for the Book’s (ICB) Web site, http://www.iowacenterforthebook.org/authors. The list continues to grow, and was recently retooled so that viewers can choose to read more about authors who do programs specifically for adults, young adults and children.
The purpose of the list is twofold: For readers, it is a source of information about Iowa authors and what they have written. For libraries, schools and other organizations, the list contains information about Iowa authors who are interested in accepting speaking engagements.
A few of the authors listed include Stephen G. Bloom, Neal Bowers, Dorothy Garlock, Donald Harstad, Mary Kay Shanley and Walt Shotwell.
