Ice Cube Press author and Iowa City native Zachary Michael Jack will read from his new novel, Corn Poll. Part political satire, part whodunit and earnest call for change, Corn Poll is a novel for political junkies and political discontents alike.

Corn Poll is a hoot and a holler for political reform. In the satirical tradition of Joe Klein’s Primary Colors and Jane Smiley’s Moo, this book will make you laugh and then think. In fact, what Zachary Michael Jack has to say might just make a difference in next year’s Iowa caucuses . . . and wouldn’t that be a good thing!” —Dr. Timothy Walch
