Opinion: New book 'Katy Has Two Grampas' reflects an Iowa family's journey

There’s a touching, beautifully illustrated new children’s book out that’s drawing five-star reviews on Amazon and bringing adult readers to tears. “Katy Has Two Grampas” is by an Iowa man, Bob Schanke, and his Minnesota-based adult daughter, Julie Schanke Lyford. The storyline stems from an experience her daughter had as a preschooler and the authors say it may be the first children’s book to feature a pair of openly gay, married men as grandparents. That seems appropriate coming from one of the first U.S. states to have recognized a right to same-sex marriage, and one whose population skews older: up to 20 percent of Iowans are or will soon be 65 and up.
