IWP Starts Year with Three Free Events

This year the International Writing Program (IWP) is kicking off the beginning of the academic year with a series of three free events Friday, September 3 and Sunday the 5th. Each Year the IWP brings authors from all over the world to Iowa City. This year, 38 authors from 32 countries will be able to experience life on an American campus, and in an UNESCO city of literature. Friday from noon to 1:30, Milosz Biedrzycki, Andrea Hirata, Beverly Perez Rego and Sölvi Björn Sigurdsson will lead a panel discussion "Translation/Writing Across Languages" in Room A of the Iowa City Public Library. Later, at 5pm, Amilcar Bettega and Pola Oloixarac will read at Shambaugh House. Finally, Maryia Martysevich and Billy Karanja Kahora will read 4pm Sunday at Prairie Lights bookstore.

All of these events are free to the public. For more information on the authors, follow this link to the IWP Writers page. The IWP hosts events featuring the visiting authors all year long. For information on upcoming events, check the IWP calendar.
