Stories Worth Telling: Marking 20 Years of “The Greatest Generation” celebrates those whose sacrifices and contributions during World War II inspired Tom Brokaw’s 1998 book The Greatest Generation. On the book’s 20th anniversary, this exhibit immerses visitors in stories of ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

Original papers, artifacts, and photographs document the events leading to World War II, share the experiences of those who fought on foreign and domestic fronts, and reveal the research used to create the bestselling book.

Drawing from the collections of the University of Iowa Libraries’ Special Collections and the African American Museum of Iowa, Stories Worth Telling brings to our current moment a generation both familiar and overlooked, offering opportunities to consider what “The Greatest Generation” means today.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the sponsoring department or contact person listed in advance of the event.
