Part two of "Why I Write What I Write" will feature playwright and journalist Natalya Vorozhbit from Russia; poet, literary and music critic, and fiction writer Adam Wiedemann from Poland; fiction writer Jo Kyung-ran from Korea; and poet Gozo Yoshimasu from Japan.
The free event will be simulcast on the library's cable channel, and taped for re-broadcast.

Thirty-nine writers, representing 28 countries, will be in residence at the University of Iowa during the next three months as participants in the IWP. The IWP is a unique residency program that each year promotes international understanding by assembling a "United Nations of writing" at the UI. Over the years, more than a thousand writers from 120 countries have completed residencies in the program.
Joint IWP panels will continue most Wednesdays through the end of October.
