I am reading the book a little at a time. It's so enjoyable; I don't want it to end! The book truly is wonderful.
We just received a copy of Celebrate IOWA for our library and we must say this is another very beautiful book!! Beautiful pictures and lots of information. It's amazing how many festivals and events there are in Iowa. It's a pleasure to put this one on our shelf, too.
