Meeting Room A


To commemorate Iowa’s 175th year of statehood, the State Historical Society of Iowa invites you to take a deep dive into some of the best books about Iowa’s fascinating history. Join Andrew Klumpp, editor of The Annals of Iowa, and a guest author for a lively, online discussion about each book.

This is a virtual event. Space is limited and registration is required. Join us in Meeting Room A, or pre-register here to view it from home via ZOOM. Books are available at the Reference Desk.

In this candid and timely book, Art Cullen, the Storm Lake Times editor who won a 2017 Pulitzer Prize for calling attention to Iowa’s polluted rivers, describes how the heartland has changed dramatically over his career. In a story where politics, farming, conservation and immigration converge, Cullen offers an unsentimental ode to rural America and to the resilient people of a vibrant community of 15,000 in northwest Iowa.

Hosted by Andrew Klumpp with author Art Cullen.
