AViD presents Heather Gudenkauf

The Des Moines Public Library is excited to announce this year’s full lineup for our Authors Visiting in Des Moines (AViD) lecture series! Now in its 17th year, AViD is a highly acclaimed, free lecture series that connects world-famous authors with an audience from across the state.

Heather Gudenkauf wraps up the lecture series on Tuesday, May 30. Gudenkauf, who lives in Dubuque, will be celebrating the release of her newest novel, Not a Sound.

Heather Gudenkauf is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of seven novels, including One Breathe Away, The Weight of Silence and These Things Hidden. Raised in Iowa, Gudenkauf was born with a profound unilateral hearing impairment and used books as a retreat. She became a voracious reader, and the seed of becoming a writer was planted. Gudenkauf graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in elementary education and continues working as a Title I Reading Coordinator in Dubuque, Iowa.
