On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

About Traitor
 Stripped of his memories and exiled to a world filled with foes, Trav Becker fights his way through parallel universes against an adversary capable of anticipating his every move. But the Traveler will do whatever it takes to be reunited with the woman he loves.
 Chaos sweeps through the multiverse, pushing Trav, Mary, and their loyal friends Sam and Morgan into a desperate fight for survival.
 On the run and forced to seek help from the unlikeliest of allies, can Trav and his friends prevent the looming collapse of reality itself?
 Dennis W. Green’s mind-bending Traveler saga races to its explosive conclusion.
 About Dennis W. Green
 Ask someone how they know Dennis Green and you might get any one of the following: Writer, DJ, actor, administrator, sports announcer, MC, swimmer, teacher, reporter, tech geek, husband, or dad. So it’s little wonder his favorite expression is the above quote by Robert Heinlein’s spacefaring immortal, Lazarus Long.

Dennis’s first novel, Traveler, was released in 2013, and scored in the Top Ten in the 2014 Ben Franklin Independent Publishing awards. Prisoner is the second novel in the Traveler Chronicles, and Trav Becker’s saga concludes in Hunter.

Dennis’s writing has appeared in the anthology Sadistic Shorts, magazines including Grift and Romance and Beyond, as well as his own blog at denniswgreen.com. He also writes for and edits the triathlon news site heartofamericatri.com.

A popular radio personality in his native Iowa, Dennis has also worked on the stage, TV, and independent film. As a DJ, his adventures were covered by newspapers from Anchorage to Los Angeles. He is one of the Midwest’s most popular MC’s, hosting dozens of events each year.

By day, he is the general manager of Iowa’s only jazz radio station, KCCK-FM. And if it’s 5:30 am, you can probably find him in the pool, working out with the Milky Way Masters swim club.
