Reading is the Talk of Iowa!

Chances are that you don’t have the time to listen to Iowa Public Radio’s 10:00 am weekday show, Talk of Iowa with host Charity Nebbe as it is broadcast live. Fortunately, episodes are posted the next day on their website for streaming and also on the the IPR mobile app.


You are definitely going to want to check out the archive because two of your IASL colleagues have recently done a great job representing Iowa teacher librarians during their interviews with the host.


In April, Marshalltown High School Teacher Librarian, Sue Inhelder shared her enthusiasm for the Iowa High School Battle of the Books.

And as the current school year wrapped up, Prairie Creek Intermediate Teacher Librarian, Ernie Cox spoke passionately about the importance of honoring the reading lives of students.

If you have time, drop an email or tweet a thank you to host Charity Nebbe for inviting Sue and Ernie onto her show. Do you have any topic ideas for her?
