Why do you read?  

In Episode Six of Lit City we hear answers to this question from some of the City of Literature's most devoted readers... and writers.  We also learn about the mass popularity of the counterculture spirit from Mike Klassen, associate professor of marketing at the University of Northern Iowa and author of the book Hippie Inc.

Also, to learn more about how a small town in Iowa became connected to the counterculture by none other than Maharishi Mahesh Yogi,  we listen in on Charity's recent interview with Claire Hoffman, author of the memoir Greetings from Utopia Park.
