Driftless by David Rhodes is the December Book for the Pioneer Bookshop Book Club


The Bookclub choice for December reading is Driftless by David Rhodes. This book has been elected as the All Iowa Reads title for 2010. The purpose of All Iowa Reads is to encourage Iowans statewide to read and talk about a single title in the same year. Libraries and other local organizations are encouraged to sponsor discussions of the title.


Author David Rhodes is a 1971 graduate of the famed Iowa Writers' Workshop. He then published three books before a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. Three decades since his last book, he returns with Driftless.

The next meeting of the club will be on Thursday, January 7 at 7pm at the Pioneer Bookshop. Everyone is welcome. Please join us.
