Read Local: Jonathan Turner

By Maria Levetzow

The Read Local series is a partnership between the Bettendorf Public Library and the Midwest Writing Center that highlights 6 local authors per year. Please join us on February 14th as we welcome local author and reporter Jonathan Turner, who will read from his book, A Brief History of Bucktown: Davenport's Infamous District Transformed, that explores the colorful past of the east side of downtown Davenport, its decline during the farming crisis, and its modern revitalization. Following the reading will be a question and answer opportunity.
