“Writing Tailgate” at the Iowa City Public Library

An event to mark Saturday, Oct. 20 as the National Day on Writing will combine Iowa City’s two passions: literature and football. In honor of both, a collective of writing programs will sponsor the first-ever "Writing Tailgate" at the Iowa City Public Library on Saturday, October 20, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Meeting Room A.

Young children through adults can join in literary scavenger hunts, Scrabble scrambles, magnetic poetry, a haiku contest, twitter stories, digital storytelling, a Hemingway Challenge (six-word stories)
