2023 All Iowa Reads Titles Announced

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.
