Butler University’s 2008-2009 Vivian S. Delbrook Visiting Writers Series begins on September 16 with a visit by poet Frank Bidart and wraps up next April with novelist and story writer T. Coraghessan Boyle. The series includes Pulitzer Prize winners, a National Book Award winner, an Oprah honoree, a U. S. Poet Laureate, and a host of distinguished others.
Here’s a link to Butler’s website, where you can read biographical information about the authors.
And to find out which of the authors’ titles are owned by IMCPL, click on the links below.
All events are free and open to the public. This series is a great gift that Butler gives to Indianapolis each year. Enjoy.

Are you planning on attending only the visits by authors of prose? You don’t need a little poetry in your life? If you think you might, but aren’t sure how to get started down the poetic path, try Edward Hirsch’s How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry. . . . . .
or Kenneth Koch’s Making Your Own Days: The Pleasures of Reading and Writing Poetry
Either one is a friendly, knowledgable invitation.
