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. Join us in Meeting Room D, or pre-register here to view it from home via ZOOM. Books are available at the Reference Desk.

The historic trek that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took from Illinois to the Salt Lake Valley was an enduring accomplishment of American overland trail migration, but their wintering at the Missouri River near present day Omaha, was also a feat of faith and perseverance.

Hosted by Andrew Klumpp with author Richard Bennet.
