'A  Land of Permanent Goodbyes' by Atia Abawi

All Iowa Reads for Teens

The All Iowa Reads selection for teenagers (ages 12-18) is 'The Land of Permanent Goodbyes' by Atia Abawi. Stop by Cresco Public Library and check out the book, which is currently on display on a table in the Teen Room.

Established in 2003, the All Iowa Reads program is one of the first projects to be provided by the Iowa Center for the Book.

The purpose of All Iowa Reads is to foster a sense of unity through reading. We encourage Iowans statewide to come together in their communities to read and talk about a single book title in the same year. Libraries, book clubs, schools and other local organizations are encouraged to sponsor discussions of the title. Please use this site for information as you read and study the book. We offer a wealth of materials including book reviews. discussion questions, and publicity materials to help you prepare successful discussions.
