Serving Iowa Students for over eighty years, Iowa Book is a locally owned independent bookstore, that also offers Hawkeye apparel and gifts. They are a landmark one-of-a-kind bookstore across the street from the Old Capitol in Iowa City.
From City Guide: Iowa City by Jan Weissmiller:
Around the corner from Prairie Lights, on the corner of Iowa Avenue and Clinton Street, is Iowa Book (8 South Clinton), which hosts readings during the Iowa City Book Festival, held in July, and holds signings throughout the year. If you wind your way past the myriad racks of Hawkeye T-shirts and take the stairs down to the trade book section, you’ll find another one of America’s greatest booksellers, Matt Lage. Paul and I regularly regale Matt with our newest opinions only because we welcome both his tributes and his tirades.
