Emily, As an Iowan (and former Iowa City resident) who now lives in Indiana, I greatly appreciate your fondness for my home state! (People ask me, "Iowa - Indiana...aren't they pretty much the same!" This, of course, horrifies me. "Absolutely not!" - is one of my tamer replies) I came across your blog after perusing the Iowan magazine website - keep up the good work!Leah
Thanks for reading the piece, Leah. I find there are many fascinating things going on in Iowa, but they often get framed in a "no, we're not in New York, we're in Iowa" light, which is really lame. It's the job of the state's writers to seek out the cool stuff and communicate why it is cool in it's own right. The Iowan has done a really good job recently of moving away from purely traditional images of the state.
