Author Ayana Mathis will visit the DMPL as a part of the Authors Visiting in Des Moines (AViD) series. Her book the Twelve Tribes of Hattie was the second pick for Oprah's Book Club 2.0, and tells the story of an African-American family who left the South during Reconstruction to create new lives for themselves. Mathis is a recipient of a Michener-Copernicus Fellowship and is currently a visiting faculty member at the Iowa Writers Workshop.
