Books: Growing up Country

April 24, 2009 | Books,Iowa

I got to meet Carol Bodensteiner at the Talbot Belmond Public Library on Tuesday night. I had her book already but hadn’t read it yet. I was compiling a list of Iowa authors for an article and found that she’d be speaking about 45 minutes away. I couldn’t pass that up, could I?

Bodensteiner talked about her book Growing up Country: Memories of an Iowa Farm Girl, and she read some passages that had us laughing out loud. She listened as we told some of our own stories of mean chickens, 10-cent movies and amazing mothers. Bodensteiner is warm, charming and funny. I’m reading her book next.

Here she is signing books.

I’ll post the list of authors after the article’s published.
