Iowa City gets roasted!


Roast of Iowa City

The Mill — Sunday, Oct. 15 at 5 p.m.

The Roast of Iowa City will be at The Mill this year, on Sunday, Oct. 15.

This Sunday, Little Village brings back one of its most beloved traditions: the Roast of Iowa City. Now celebrating its eighth year, the Roast returns to the Mill stage for an evening of laughs and poking fun. The Roast is a terrific way to close out the final day of the Iowa City Book Festival. For the fantastic price of absolutely free, you can gather with selected roasters from the community as they take their most humorous stab at puncturing the inflated ego of our fair city.

Iowa City comedians Jessica Misra and Mike Lucas host the event, and are joined by roasters Austin Mooney, Elizabeth Moen, Eric Persoon, Daniel Frana, Gerald Bronson and Jake Harney, along with a live reading from the always popular Iowa City Police Log.

Prior to the Roast, at 3:30 p.m., The Mill will host Little Village‘s other Book Festival contribution, the Hot Tin Roof reading. Past honorees from our Hot Tin Roof series will share both the work we have published and other writings.
