All Iowa Reads Virtual Author Visit

June 13, 2023
7:00 to 8:00PM
Council Bluffs Public Library

Join us for this virtual author visit with the All Iowa Reads author, Sequoia Nagamatsu. View with us at the library, or join from home via ZOOM. Strap in for the highs and lows with the pandemic novel How High We Go in the Dark. Nagamatsu's debut novel about a climate change virus in 2030 that alters humanity centuries into the future, could hit all too hard. Make no mistake, this is a book about death, but it is balanced by thoughtful explorations of how the survivors process death and loss through art. Even the bleakest stories conjure up a memorable image. Established in 2003, the purpose of All Iowa Reads is to foster a sense of unity through reading. Iowans are encouraged to come together in their communities to read and talk about a single book title in the same calendar year. There will be a discussion held in July, with books available for checkout from the Reference Desk.
