Indiana Authors Award winner and all-around clever, insightful, sometimes mordant guy Michael Martone will make the trip north from his homebase at the Creative Writing Program at the University of Alabama to talk at UIndy as part of its author series (we've included only one date in the fall lineup; head to uindy.edu/arts for the rest). Here;s a great Martone quote from his interview with us last year: "So in some ways I think of the Midwest, and also of Indiana, in the way one is supposed to regard a Zen garden. Unlike a western garden, where you walk through it and participate with the plants, in the Zen garden you are on the outskirts, but you face inward, toward the garden and, no matter where you sit, there is always one of those big rocks hidden. You can never see it all."
