Back by popular demand, the State Historical Society of Iowa’s online book club has returned with a thought-provoking lineup.
The Iowa History Book Club featured Richard Bennett’s “Mormons at the Missouri” on April 14. Programming later this year includes late Sen. John Culver and John Hyde’s “American Dreamer: A Life of Henry A. Wallace” on Sept. 22 and Linda Clemmons’ “Dakota in Exile” on Dec. 1.
“We were delighted with the response to last year’s schedule of books and authors, and we are featuring another top-notch set of offerings this year,” says Andrew Klumpp, who edits the State Historical Society of Iowa’s quarterly journal, “The Annals of Iowa.” Klumpp leads each online discussion.
In addition to the book club, the historical society continues its series of Iowa History 101 online presentations. Registration to all of the online events is free but required.
