Last week, Lance and I celebrated the release of Prairie Gold with the good people of Ames. Four of our talented contributors (Michelle Donahue, Rachel Lopez, Claire Kruesel, and Meghan Brown) read their work, so many people came out that at one point we were standing room only, delicious refreshments courtesy of a 2014 AgArts Local Wonders grant were enjoyed by all, and our dedicated audience stuck around long after the event ended (9:00 on a Friday night, mind you) to discuss literature. Plus, we sold a bunch of books.

In sum, our first Prairie Gold event was a great success!

The College of Design was wonderful enough to loan us their amazing downtown space for the night. It’s great to be fostering connections between the literary and visual arts. Here’s our event in a news release published by the College of Design: Book Release Party Marks Start of ISU Design on Main Gallery’s Fall Programming Aug. 29.
