Shalom! Start the Passover season by delving into Iowa’s Jewish history, from the election of Iowa City’s — and, possibly, the nation’s — first Jewish mayor to the hurdles faced today by the state’s small but united Jewish communities. Also in this issue: Neko Case (formerly of the New Pornographers) discusses her most recent album, which she calls “a reaction to straight colonial white male aggression”; our resident sexpert Natalie Benway breaks down some real-life and real cringey sex stories; Wild Culture Kombucha’s taproom brings a big-city staple to the Northside neighborhood; photos from Mission Creek Festival 2019 and more!

  1. I just want to say your publication is so awesome. I was born and lived in Iowa City until 1988. I miss home so much and was happy to see info and events going on . I loved the article on canoeing down the Iowa river so interesting. My question is do you have hard copies of your publication? I would love to share with my grand children. Seeing all the ads of businesses and restraunts in the town . I remember when Things things and things burned terrible day. Does anyone remember the Bamboo inn restaurant or the Iowa movie theater? How about Novotenys bike shop. I love Iowa City so much thank you for making my day. I caught your ad on my phone and read and read again the six samples of Little Village magazine. I would love to be on your mailing list for a monthly mailing of a great publication of a wonderful City and it’s history and people. Thank you so very much again for the memories.
