IN Writing : Uncovering the Unexpected Hoosier State, Paperback Book

IN Writing : Uncovering the Unexpected Hoosier State Paperback


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.
