Each year the Metro Libraries (the public libraries in Cedar Rapids, Marion, and Hiawatha) join together to bring in a series of authors to speak. They are starting later than usual this year (often it begins in April), but their first program is June 27th with Sarah Vowell and I hope that you will get a chance to attend.

If you are unfamiliar with the event, learn more here:

Find the complete schedule for all three authors, an introduction to each one, and more information here:

  • Sarah Vowell – Friday, June 27 at 7 p.m.
  • Wally Lamb – Friday, July 11, at 7 p.m.
  • Elizabeth Berg – Friday, July 18, at 7 p.m.

Tickets aren’t required, although they’d prefer you to register for the event (for free at their website, see link above).

All three events will be held at the Kirkwood Center by the Kirkwood Hotel here on the Cedar Rapids campus. If you are coming from off campus, here is a map to help you find the Hotel. It’s listed as Number 34-35 on the campus map:
