On this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Gary Porter to discuss his memoir, Town Kid: Reflections of a Midwestern Boyhood. The book is a collection of essays capturing moments from Porter's childhood, and slices of life in small-town Iowa.
Porter was born in 1950 and grew up in Greenfield, a town of about 2000 people.
He's authored numerous accounting textbooks and Duffy: The Tale of a Terrier, a book inspired by his shelter dog.
