Join us at the Iowa City Public Library for a book discussion of the 2013 All Iowa Reads selection, The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson.
A sweeping and emotionally powerful story of a single American family during the tumultuous final decades of the twentieth century.
Stretching from the early 1970s in the Iowa farmlands to suburban Chicago and across the map of contemporary America, The Year We Left Home follows the Erickson siblings as they confront prosperity and heartbreak, setbacks and triumphs, and seek their place in a country whose only constant seems to be breathtaking change.
Sample discussion questions are available at: http://www.iowacenterforthebook.org/air/AIR-13-dq
