From the Press Citizen

The Iowa City Council at its Monday night work session committed to providing financial support to the Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature’s nonprofit organization.

Iowa City was named a “City of Literature,” one of only three in the world and the first in the United States, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, or UNESCO.

The new organization will promote reading, support writers and literary education, create literary activities and facilitate appreciation of literature, according to a city memorandum.
