Local Libraries LIT (Listen, Initiate, Talk), a collaboration between Johnson County libraries, will welcome author Kevin Wilson on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. for a free online reading and conversation. The Local Libraries LIT author series is offered by public libraries in Johnson County, as well as the University of Iowa Libraries and Kirkwood Community College Library – Iowa City Campus with support from The Tuesday Agency.

Kevin Wilson is the author of two collections: Tunneling to the Center of the Earth, which received an Alex Award from the American Library Association and the Shirley Jackson Award, and Baby You’re Gonna Be Mine. In addition to the upcoming We Are Fugitives and 2019’s Nothing to See Here (selected by Jenna Bush Hager for the Read with Jenna book club, and a Best Book of the Year according to The New York Times, Washington Post, People, TIME, Entertainment Weekly, and more) Kevin is also the author of the novels The Family Fang—a NYT bestseller adapted into a film starring Nicole Kidman and Jason Bateman—and the critically acclaimed Perfect Little World.

This special speaker series is offered at no charge to participants, though donations are welcomed to help sustain and grow Local Libraries LIT. Local Libraries LIT strives to grow a community which shines with diversity, equity, and inclusion.
