6th Annual Roast of Iowa City: Submit your roast by Sept. 15 for a shot at fame/infamy

Join us on Oct. 4 at the Trumpet Blossom Cafe for Little Village’s sixth-annual roast of Iowa City, hosted by comedian Megan Gogerty. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. as part of the 2015 Iowa City Book Festival. Like years previous, the Roast of Iowa City brings out the best in Iowa City by imploring its residents to dish out their worst.
