Huxley Public Library will host Author Linda McMann on Sept. 23 at 10 a.m. Come to the library for a light brunch and discussion of McCann’s book, “Prisoners of War in Iowa.” McCann has written several books on many aspects of Iowa history. She speaks frequently at libraries across Iowa and has spoke nearby at both the Slater and Polk City libraries.


“There were about 25,000 German, Italian and Japanese prisoners of war in Iowa from 1943-1946,” McCann said. Her talks are always well-received, so invite a friend and join the discussion.
