Neil Nakadate and Mary Swander Contribute Work to Anthology, Letters to a Young Iowan
This book makes it abundantly clear what a wide range of lively, engaging and engaged souls live in the land between the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. The voices linger in my spirit like a big choir and all the notes, the harmonies and the dissonance together say more about my home state than any other single volume I have seen. --Greg Brown, Iowa singer-songwriter and two-time Grammy nominee
