WE THE INTERWOVEN:
AN ANTHOLOGY OF BICULTURAL IOWA
The first ever story collection featuring original stories from immigrant and first-generation Iowans. Our contributors were residents through the Bicultural Iowa Writers’ Fellowship: Sadagat Aliyeva, an immigrant from Azerbaijan; Chuy Renteria, whose family lived in a border town of Mexico; and Melissa Palma, a second-generation immigrant from the Philippines.
