The Iowa City Public Library will host “Remembering Our Fallen,” a touring photo display honoring Iowa servicemen and servicewoman who have died from wounds suffered in a war zone since September 11, 2001.
The exhibit will be on display in the Library’s first floor gallery Nov. 1 through Nov. 8. The exhibit’s stop at the Library is supported by U.S. Bank.
“Remembering Our Fallen” was created to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Photo exhibits exist in 18 states so that the men and woman who made the ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.
In addition to the exhibit, the Library will host a book reading with Miyoko Hikiji from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 5, in Meeting Room A.
Hikiji is the project director for the non-profit group Veterans National Recovery Center in Iowa and an instructor for the “Writing My Way Back Home” workshop. She served with the Iowa National Guard for nine years, and earned 14 military decorations for service. Her memoir, “All I Could Be: My Story as a Woman Warrior in Iraq,” details more than 70 missions throughout the northwest quadrant of Iraq in 2003 and 2004.
