The 2023 Talk of Iowa Book Club list is here

Talk of Iowa, hosted by Charity Nebbe

The Thing in the Snow, a novel by Sean Adams, takes a twisted look at the challenges of working in isolation and living in an age of endless distraction. His characters live bizarre lives at the far reaches of the Earth, but their challenges are relatable. Adams talks with host Charity Nebbe.

Then, Nebbe and talk show producer Caitlin Troutman discuss the selections for the 2023 Talk of Iowa book club.
