The City of Literature organization is partnering with several area bookstores to host the City of Literature Booksellers’ Holiday Gift Guide. Local booksellers will gather at 7 p.m. Monday Nov 24, at the Iowa City Public Library to present and talk about their top suggestions for holiday gifts. This is an opportunity to ask for an expert’s recommendations and get a jumpstart on holiday shopping.
“We are fortunate to live in a community with so many world-class independent bookstores. These booksellers are experts on what writers and readers want, and they have fantastic gift ideas for all ages,” said Rachael Carlson, operations manager at the City of Literature.
Participating stores include: Among the Stacks, The Book End, The Book Shop, Defunct Books, The Haunted Bookshop, Iowa Book, New Bo Books, Prairie Lights Books, University Bookstore, and Uptown Bill’s.
The City of Literature Bookseller’s Holiday Gift Guide will take place in Meeting Room A at the Iowa City Public Library on Nov 24 at 7 p.m. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
