We Must Be Fearless!

11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Monroe County History Center, 202 E 6th Street
http://www.monroehistory.org

We Must Be Fearless: The Woman’s Suffrage Movement in Indiana by Anita Morgan is a popular history of the women’s suffrage movement in Indiana and tells the story of the sixty-nine-year struggle for the right to vote in the state. The people who acted, what they did, and the results of their efforts are the focus. Through this story, it also places the state’s women more firmly in the history of Indiana, the Midwest, and the nation. Author Anita Morgan will present her continuing research for the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial in honor of the release of her new book.

David Sedaris

07:30 pm to 10:30 pm
IU Auditorium
https://www.iuauditorium.com/events/detail/david-sedaris-2020

Join best-selling author and NPR contributor David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories, an audience Q&A, and a book signing. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr. Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection, Calypso. Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny—it’s a book that can make you laugh ’til you snort, the way only family can.

Napoleon Dynamite

07:30 pm to 10:30 pm
IU Auditorium
https://www.iuauditorium.com/events/detail/napoleon-dynamite

The beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite was made almost 15 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts. Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time.

Napoleon Dynamite makes us laugh—and laugh hard—over and over again.

This unique evening includes a full screening of Napoleon Dynamite followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).

Event is BYOT (Bring Your Own Tots).
