Each year since 2003, committees of volunteers have selected titles for the All Iowa Reads program.
The adult All Iowa Reads title must:
- Raise universal social issues relevant to Iowans
- Lend itself to sustained, spirited, and in-depth discussion
- Be available by January 1 of the selection year in a variety of accessible formats
- Strike a balance between literary merit and broad appeal
- Have an Iowa or Midwest connection
The APL Book Club will read the adult selection in June.
