February 24, 2021Add a CommentPosted By

Thanks to our amazing cities and universities, Iowa has been blessed with a myriad of talented authors, known across the globe for their compelling novels, short stories, poetry and the like. And because we’re going to be stuck indoors for a while longer, it’s the perfect excuse to catch up on some reading!

We rounded up a handful of Iowa’s most famous writers and compiled them right here—along with a couple of suggested reads, of course! Below you’ll find recommendations for autobiographies, crime novels, poems, children’s picture books and so much more. So, the next time you get a chance, be sure to stop by one of our favorite local bookstores (either in-person or online) and pick up a few titles from these talented creators.
