I’ve had a lot of people say to me, Iowa? Really? I think most people assume it’s just farmland and cornfields but it’s also a huge writing culture and arts state. It’s the only City of Literature in the United States out of seven in the world. Why did the United Nations pick Iowa? I have no idea. I’m super grateful they did though. I love it.
