"Joni's Wish" is a children's book that comes out in March about a girl who discovers a friend is unable to ride bikes with her because of a disability.

Why it matters: The book is based on real stories about Iowa children assisted by Variety who lack access to common items because they often need expensive customized equipment.

🎉 Get it first: Proceeds of a Feb. 21 launch party will help purchase mobility equipment for a child.

  • Tickets are $100 and include a signed copy of the book.
  • 5:30pm at NCMIC Insurance, 14001 University Ave. in Clive

Of note: The book can also be pre-ordered online. ($20)
