CommUnity Book Club--Bottomland (2017 All Iowa Reads book)
Bottomland by Michelle Hoover is the 2017 All Iowa Reads (AIR) book. "At once intimate and sweeping, this story follows the Hess family in the years after World War I as they attempt to rid themselves of the anti-German sentiment that left a stain on their name. But when the youngest two daughters vanish in the middle of the night, the family must piece together what happened while struggling to maintain their life on the unforgiving Iowa plains" (Amazon). The State Library of Iowa's Center for the Book program has been selecting All Iowa Reads books each year since 2003. To learn more you can visit www.iowacenterforthebook.org/air.
