Please join us from 11-1pm for Claudia McGehee's Iowa River Frost Fair (an event in name inspired by medieval artisan fairs held on the frozen river Thames in London, home to Claudia’s ancestors!).  Iowa City based Illustrator/Author Claudia will sign her new 2024 Engagement Calendars, copies of her beloved illustrated books, and we will have lots of her new holiday cards and prints on hand!  All who stop by will receive a small Frost Fair paper gift.
