There are many great literary events around Indianapolis and beyond. Looking for something to do? Here are just a few ideas:


The Indianapolis Branch of the Vonnegut Library Book Club will meet on Thursday, October 24, at the Emelie Building in downtown Indianapolis (340 N. Senate Avenue) at 11:30 a.m. The library does not open until noon, but you can enter through Katz & Korin entrance. In preparation for VonnegutFest, we will be studying Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. (Tim will hold  a book signing and participate in a veterans' panel during VonnegutFest.) Please join us.

What must we risk to pursue our dreams?

“The Risk of Pursuing Your Passion” will be a two hour event featuring a panel of creative professionals discussing the risks and rewards of living into their dreams.  While there’s a place for events featuring people who are widely known, this event is meant to illuminate how ordinary people found the will to create their lives intentionally.

Hello,
I just learned of the IWC and am intrigued on behalf of my 10-year old son. I was thinking it might be helpful to annotate the events if they are kid-friendly? And please, if you might let me know if you have any upcoming events for kids? My son is in 5th grade and has struggles with writing so am looking for additional support. Thank you!
Jill
