Zakery's Bridge

Feb 28, 2011

The new book, "Zakery's Bridge: Children's Journeys from Around the World to Iowa," features nine young storytellers describing their lives in their home countries, explaining how and why they came to American and what it has been like to settle in Iowa. On its release date in January, the book was the backdrop for the naturalization ceremony for 100 children at the State Historical Museum of Iowa. We'll talk to authors Carol Spaulding-Kruse, professor of English at Drake University and Kay Smith, a Des Moines-based children's author.
