Iowa City Book Festival: featuring FREEMAN by Leonard Pitts, Jr.

Clear your schedules for the Iowa City Book Festival October 10-13!

Stop by the University of Iowa Press table on October 12 to pick up Freeman, by Leonard Pitts, Jr., from Agate Publishing! Freeman is written by a Pulitzer Prizewinning columnist and earned a Publishers Weekly starred review. It tells the postCivil War love story of a runaway slave who once worked for the Union Army.

Praise for Freeman
"[A] uniquely American epic . . . Freeman is an important addition to the literature of slavery and the Civil War, by a knowledgable, compassionate, and relentlessly truthful writer determined to explore both enslavement in all its malignancy and also what it truly means to be free."--Howard Frank Mosher,  Washington Post
