2021 Kids All Iowa Reads Virtual Author Visit

October 21, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The 2021 All Iowa Reads kids book pick is Pie in the Sky by Remy Lai! Pie in the Sky is a funny and poignant chapter book/graphic novel hybrid about a boy named Jingwen, whose family moves from China to Australia. Knowing little English, struggling to fit into his new culture, and reeling from the loss of his father, Jingwen deals by making elaborate cakes in secret with his annoying little brother.

Join this exciting webinar, sponsored by the Center for the Book and the State Library of Iowa, to hear Remy Lai talk about her work, and answer your questions! Webinars with Remy will be offered May 15, July 13, and October 21.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
