The Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature app - 'City of Lit’ - features information on Iowa City's rich literary history, highlighting authors and local sites of interest.
Version 2.0 includes a "Citizen Scholarship" feature that allows
viewers to contribute commentary, photography audio and video to the app.
City of lit includes biographical and bibliographic information on Iowa city authors, complemented with audio and video clips.
Visitors can guide themselves around town in literary style. The app offers maps of Iowa City, with embedded electronic 'brass plaques,' indicating a variety of unique locations: where historic readings took place, where authors wrote, and the legendary taverns where writers gathered to argue and gossip.
“News” and “Events” are constantly updated with reports from Iowa City (goings-on around town, readings, book launches, films and lectures) and the literary world.
Each day the app serves up an author quote.
New authors and materials are frequently added to this essential literary resource.
Iowa City is one of five cities worldwide to receive UNESCO’s City of Literature designation.
