Admission is free and open to the public. The Iowa Bibliophiles' major objective is to provide a forum in which to share and gather experience and information about books and book collecting. The group is for anyone with a serious interest in books, their creation, preservation and collecting.

Russell, a district court judge in Iowa's sixth judicial district, is a long-time collector of Churchill's work. He is also the author of a monograph on Churchill's orders, decorations and medals and is completing a military biography of Churchill to be published by Brassey's (London).
