@ Artisan Gallery 218



Maureen McCue discusses how humanity is integrated into nature and urges people to become more aware of the connection between our lives and the land. Her book explores the connections between rural and  urban life in eastern Iowa and her experiences in Ecuador, India, Haiti, Bangladesh and elsewhere.

About the Author…..


Maureen McCue has worked as a physician, educator, and researcher in countries all around the globe, but says her quiet lifestyle in Oxford — just outside Iowa City — affords her time to enjoy the beauty of nature, while also noting unsettling changes in those surroundings. McCue, a retired professor in the Colleges of Public Health and Liberal Arts and Sciences, co-founded the University of Iowa’s Global Health Studies Program.

Artisan Gallery 218 is located at 218 Fifth Street in West Des Moines.  Beaverdale Books will have books available for sale and signing.
