Celebrated Journalist Douglas A. Wissing Connects Indiana Stories to the World

07:00 pm to 08:00 pm
Wylie House Museum’s Education Center

Fueled by an insider’s view of Indiana and the state’s often surprising connections to the larger world, celebrated journalist Douglas A. Wissing will reveal Indiana in all its glory: sacred and profane; saints and sinners; war and peace; small towns and big cities; art, architecture, poetry and victuals in a talk at the Wylie House Museum’s Education Center on September 22nd beginning at 7:00 pm.

As the state celebrates its bicentennial in 2016, Wissing’s talk and his latest book, ‘IN Writing: Uncovering the Unexpected Hoosier State,’ provide an alternative Indiana history though his stories of Hoosier talent, and sometimes idiosyncratic genius: the courageous farmer-soldiers who ardently try to win the hearts and minds of 21st century Afghan insurgents; the artisans whose work pulses with the aesthetics of far-away homelands; the famous modernist poet who had to leave to make his mark. He speaks about places that speak to a wider world: Columbus and its remarkable architecture; Bloomington’s counterintuitive Tibetan community; New Harmony and its enduring idealism; the Calumet Region’s world’s-best brewery; Indianapolis and its renowned Crown Hill cemetery. Wissing makes visible the unexpected bonds between Indiana and the world at large.
