Mary Kay Shanley is the author of 10 books, including She Taught Me to Eat Artichokes and her favorite, Our State Fair--Iowa's Blue Ribbon Story. Her next book is a memoir with the working title The Woman Who Had Me. Mary Kay says it will be released in 2015 --- if everything goes right. She adds that authors are an anxious lot. Mary Kay also teaches at the University of Iowa's Summer Writing Festival, co-conducts four-day writing retreats and works with two writing groups. She's very happy to join us this noon to share fabulous stories about our great state fair.

How-to Tuesday: Free Advice for Your Device

Oct 21
Tuesday 12:00 pm
Bring your mobile device (smartphone, tablet or e-reader) to one of our classes and get some advice and help installing the library's apps for e-books, downloadable audiobooks and e-magazines. Classes and apps are all free. Your gadget must have basic setup done (out of the box, set up, passwords entered, charged and know the basics) as a prerequisite to this class. You will need your library card and PIN, and you may need the password for your App Store on your device. Pre-register as class size is limited so we can give one-on-one attention.
