The Metro Library Network (Cedar Rapids-Marion-Hiawatha Public Libraries) is going to have a series of author events in the Ballantyne Auditorium in Cedar Hall on the Kirkwood Community College Campus.  Between April and July roughly two authors a month will be making the trek to Cedar Rapids and speak about and read from their books. It kicks off with Stephen Lovely who wrote Irreplaceable (the 2011 Linn Area Reads selection) and includes a wide range of authors from Steve Martini to Meg Cabot.

For a schedule and a complete list of authors:
