2022 April Storywalk
April 1 - April 30
The Iowa City Downtown District is excited to announce its third Downtown Iowa City StoryWalk! For the month of April, kids and families are invited to take a walk through Downtown and the Northside neighborhoods as they read pages from a book displayed in shop windows. To start the walk, kids and families can pick up the official maps at the starting location and follow the marked path from store to store to read the book.
The Downtown Iowa City StoryWalk will have two routes available. Norman Didn’t Do It! (Yes, he did,) a newly-released children’s book written and illustrated by Ryan T. Higgins, will have 21 stops throughout Downtown. Always by My Side, written and illustrated by Iowa-native Jennifer Black Reinhardt, will be another route that will take you through 17 stops in the Northside.
Families can enjoy the books at their own pace. Kids and families will be able to submit their map at the end of each route for a chance to win a copy of the books and a prize. Books are available for purchase at Prairie Lights Bookstore.
