“I have been a resident of Iowa City for several years now, and while I love to travel, I always find myself eager to get back home. There are few places that offer big-city features like theatre, fine dining, and stellar educational opportunities while at the same time making you feel like a member of a close-knit community. I love that I can walk into Prairie Lights Bookstore and be greeted by name, even with Iowa City being the only UNESCO City of Literature in the U.S. (and one of only 6 in the world).”
