Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of the great authors of our region. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, David Rhodes is the author of 5 novels including the award-winning Driftless, and Jewelweed, published by Milkweed Editions.
In Jewelweed, Rhodes takes us to Words, Wisconsin, where characters struggle to find a new sense of belonging. Filled with empathy and wonder, where the seemingly mundane is transformed into revelatory beauty, Jewelweed captures the heart of flawed individuals whose experiences resonate universally.
As a young man, David Rhodes worked in fields, hospitals, and factories across Iowa. With a literary career spanning 41 years, David Rhodes has been compared to John Steinbeck and James Michener, with characters and stories firmly rooted in the Driftless Region.
