Des Moines, Iowa - Business Publications Corporation, Inc. has announced a new book publishing project for the Governor of Iowa that will release this fall. “Iowa’s Record Setting Governor: The Terry Branstad Story” depicts the life journey of Terry Branstad through personal interviews, photographs, Duffy cartoons and commentary from close friends, peers and colleagues. The book is written by Iowa author and former newspaper publisher, Mike Chapman. Branstad will be recognized with the landmark achievement of being designated as the longest serving governor in the history of the United States of America this December.   

“I’ve known Terry Branstad for over 30 years. There’s a reason he’s one of the most respected governors in America and has become a living legend in Iowa. He is a kind and thoughtful man with integrity. Anybody interested in politics, and the interesting life of a man leading an important state, should read this book.” –Roger Ailes, president Fox News

In keeping with the historic nature of the project, all of the proceeds will be invested in a new fund created through the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines to further the education and preservation of Iowa’s history.
