Attention Iowa City! I'm headed your way

By Carl Zimmer | July 11, 2012 12:29 pm

Tomorrow I’m flying to Iowa City for a couple talks. It’s my first time to the city and the state, so I’m looking forward to it. I hope some Iowa-based Loominaries can catch me at the following events:

Friday, July 13, 9 am, Medical Alumni Auditorium, University of Iowa: “Infecting Minds: Science Communication With New Media.” Sponsored by the Divisions of General Internal Medicine & Infectious Disease in the Carver College of Medicine and Department of Epidemiology in the College of Public Health. Details here.

Saturday, July 14, 1 pm, Macbride Hall, University of Iowa: “A Planet of Viruses.” I’ll be speaking as part of the Iowa City Book Festival. Details here.

    Try some Millstream beer while you’re there. I still have friends bring some back to me in Chicago.

    Enjoy your time in IC – I miss it!
    Be sure to eat at the Motley Cow on North Linn St. Don’t let the name fool you – they don’t specialize in beef, but in local, organic foods. Excellent chef. I am in no way connected to the restaurant, other than it was one of my favorite places in Iowa City.

    Enjoy ICIA! It’s a great little city that I love. I agree about the Motley Moo completely. And visit the natural history museum – it’s in one of the old Capitol Buildings (don’t remember which one, sorry). And visit Prairie Lights. A great book store. How I envy you …

    Welcome to Iowa City! City of Literature, home of the Iowa Hawkeyes, Pagliai’s Pizza near Motley Cow, Hamburg Inn 2 which is a stop for the Presidents also near Motley Cow. It’s known to have the 2nd highest concentration of college degreed residents in the nation. Up the river just below the Coralville Dam (north of Coralville, not the one in Coralville) is Devonian Gorge. Have someone run you up there to check it out.
