Plus the Black Friday Giveaway Book Bonanza Hop!
Join us on Saturday, July 21, 2018
Imagine Other Worlds with Authors (I.O.W.A.) is multi-genre, multi-author book signing event held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in the summer. I.O.W.A. is the brainchild of local Cedar Rapids authors, Aaron Bunce and Jed Quinn as well a two bookworms, Dana Beatty and Terri M. LeBlanc. This year, we are adding a third organizer to our merry band, Amanda Zhorne, who is a a huge fan of reading, books and authors. We are excited to have her as part of our team.
Our event, now in its third year, is growing and we are excited that we will be at a new venue in 2018. The Clarion Hotel and Convention Center in Cedar Rapids is hosting our event. This means more room for our authors (SIX FOOT TABLES!) and more room for our readers to shop, mix and mingle with the authors and other attendees. Our event will remain free for readers and fans.
In the coming weeks, we will be announcing which authors will be joining us on Saturday, July 21. Please follow us on Facebook to get regular updates about the event. We look forward to seeing you next summer!
Never attended an author signing event?
As a reader, it can be intimidating or scary to attend an event like this. But trust us when we say that the authors that attend our event are happy and friendly folks who want to talk to you about books and reading. Last summer, we created this short video telling folks about how an event like this works. Watch it to learn more!
