Meet the Author


Bob Hibbs has authored four previous books, including three on Iowa City. He's a third-generation Iowan who landed in Iowa City for college and stayed. He and his high school sweetheart have shared 47 years of marriage and have two sons. A journalist by training, Hibbs spent much of his working lifetime in property management while his wife, Margaret, first nursed and later counseled as a patient representative through 40 years at university hospitals. They have shared the same Iowa City home in a quiet, old ethnic neighborhood since 1968.
