All Iowa Reads (Webinar)

Begins 01/23/2019
Available capacity: 482

The 2019 title is a joint selection between Iowa’s All Iowa Reads program and Nebraska’s One Book One Nebraska program: This Blessed Earth: A Year in the Life of an American Family Farm by Ted Genoways.

“The family farm lies at the heart of our national identity, yet its future is in peril.  Far from an isolated refuge beyond the reach of global events, the family farm is increasingly at the crossroads of emerging technologies and international détente. Ted Genoways explores this rapidly changing landscape of small, traditional farming operations, mapping as it unfolds day to day.”

The author and members of the AIR Committee will provide an in-depth commentary about the story, identify topics and themes important to librarians planning their own discussions, and will take questions from the audience throughout.

In addition, the following elements will be included: Mini reviews of books that were 2019 finalists; availability of multiple copies to use in your discussion; adding your upcoming program to the AIR Calendar of Events; and resources available on the Iowa Center for the Book website.
