[ARCHIVED] First Cedar Falls Authors Festival Events Announced

CF Authors Festival Logo.jpg.jpg

Cedar Falls has been a rich seedbed for authors—from pioneer times to the present. In an effort to reclaim this important legacy and to encourage new authors, young and old, the Cedar Falls Authors Festival was born.

The festival celebrates five nationally-known best-selling authors either from or with strong ties to Cedar and many other Cedar Falls authors past and present. The nearly 25 events over the next year are collaborations among the University of Northern Iowa and nearly every arts and cultural organization in Cedar Falls. 

Through a series of programs from May 2017–May 2018, participants will meet these authors, read and hear their works, and see how their works have been adapted into films, plays, music, art and more, as well as some of the work they’ve inspired. They will explore diverse visions of Cedar Falls as presented across the years.

As a lasting product of the festival, a Cedar Falls Authors Directory is being created, which will be housed online at the public library and UNI’s Rod Library. If you consider yourself an author or would like to nominate someone else, please visit and complete the survey found on the homepage.
