Iowa City Book Festival: featuring BUTTER: A NOVEL by Anne Panning

Are you ready for the Iowa City Book Festival? Make sure to visit our table on Saturday, October 12. We’ll be selling our own books, as well as books from presses around the Midwest. Don’t miss the chance to buy Butter: A Novel, by Anne Panning, from the Northern Illinois University Press. Butter is a coming-of-age story about an eleven-year-old named Iris who learns she’s not only adopted but also that her parents' marriage isn’t as stable as she once thought.

Praise for Butter
“Anne Panning is one of the most underrated writers in America. Butter, with its irresistible young narrator, confirms her gift for making storytelling look easy. The book reminds me in many ways of Mary Karr’s The Liar’s Club, Tony Earley’s Jim the Boy, and Jeannette Wall’s The Glass Castle. Quickly engrossing and full in its emotive texture, this expertly crafted novel is disarming, innovative, and unforgettable.”—Nancy Zafris
