Count down to exciment at Capital Square

Eleven days to go until you can meet Iowa authors and get to know their stories both in print and in person. Find out what they are working on for your future reading pleasure.

Note the variety of stories offered; this is a small sample of the treasures that Iowa writers and authors have in their minds.

Over the last three or four years, I have met or read several young author writings and you need to look for them as they will amaze you with their talent for telling their stories in print.

Some of the books are available in audio, for the authors attending this year’s event, just ask.

If you do buy a book or two or three please write an honest review for their book. Your review will inspire them to write more. Maybe a sequel or two.

Again, come downtown to the Capital Square Atrium ,401 Locust street, September 15th,9 to 3, to meet Iowa Authors and have some fun. Maybe you will be inspired?

This Wednesday listen to Larry’s and others interview on KFMG 98.9FM with John Busbee
