Imagine Other Worlds with Authors (I.O.W.A.) is a multi-genre, multi-author book signing event held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at the Cedar Rapids Public Library. I.O.W.A. was originally the brainchild of local Cedar Rapids authors Aaron Bunce and Jed Quinn as well as two bookworms, Dana Beatty and Terri M. LeBlanc. As of late 2018, we have been acquired by The Writers’ Rooms! Our multitude of wonderful volunteers are currently working together to bring you a two-day, event-filled local author festival at CRPL.
I.O.W.A. 2019 will be held on the full days of September 7th and 8th. The event is free for attendees.

About The Purple Door District:
Bianca was supposed to attend art school in Chicago, not run for her life from Hunters. The only chance she has to survive is to find The Purple Door District, a safe haven for a parahuman like herself. When she stumbles upon a magus named Gladus and a fellow avian named Carlos, she thinks she's found safety. But the Hunters are relentless, as is the dark force driving them.
Vampire, werewolf,avian, magus—
It's up to the parahumans of the Purple Door District of Chicago to put their differences aside to save Bianca and stop a dark threat from destroying their peaceful community.
