The Iowa Journal is hosted by Amy Johnson Boyle sitting in for Todd Mundt. For one reason or another as many as 30 million Americans cannot read. Some live in Iowa, a state that has always found pride in its schools. This Iowa Journal looks at illiteracy in Iowa, and some remedies with guests Anne Murr and Alexander Hilson. "Out and About" Correspondent Dan Kaercher goes to the Putnam Museum in Davenport, and looks at a significant Iowa community that pre-dates statehood. And David Pitt of the Associated Press provides news analysis.
