Event Details

Join Iowa author Mark D. Wilson as he discusses his book, "The Way of Nile Kinnick, Jr.:  Insights, Images, and Stories of Iowa's 1939 Heisman Trophy Winner. " 

Wilson says, “In our lifetimes, many of us have had or still have an individual we look up to; someone who inspires us, challenges us, helps us face adversities, or helps us form a positive outlook on life. Nile Clarke Kinnick, Jr. is that person for me. Kinnick’s way of thinking inspired me to write the book, The Way of Nile Kinnick, Jr., a compilation of 366 memorable quotes from his letters, journals, and speeches. I was also driven to share my connections to this fascinating and admirable young man through my own personal stories.”
