IN Writing : Uncovering the Unexpected Hoosier State, Paperback / softback Book

IN Writing : Uncovering the Unexpected Hoosier State Paperback / softback


Fueled by an insider's view of Indiana and the state's often surprising connections to the larger world, IN Writing is revelatory.

It is Indiana in all its glory: sacred and profane; saints and sinners; war and peace; small towns and big cities; art, architecture, poetry and victuals.

It's about Hoosier talent and Hoosier 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; and the famous modernist poet who had to leave to make his mark.

It's about places that speak to a wider world: Columbus and its remarkable architecture; New Harmony and its enduring idealism; Indianapolis and its world-renowned Crown Hill cemetery.

IN Writing makes visible the unexpected bonds between Indiana and the world at large.
