Talk of Iowa Book Club

Monday, March 25th, Charity Nebbe will talk with Ted Genoways, author of This Blessed Earth: A Year in the Life of an American Family Farm. The book, a portrait of one family’s struggle to hold onto their legacy, is the 2019 All Iowa Reads selection and we’d like to invite YOU to join us in reading the title for an on-air book club!

To participate, read the book, write down your questions, then call in on March 25th to talk about it with the author. Everyone who reads the book and participates with us on social media or by calling in to the show will receive a Talk of Iowa Book Club pin.

Ted Genoways will appear in conversation at the DSM Book Fest in downtown Des Moines on Saturday, March 30 for a chat with Charity Nebbe and a book signing.

“Genoways gives the reader a kitchen-table view of the vagaries, complexities and frustrations of modern farming … insightful and empathetic.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
