Indiana Author Series

I will be examining the career of famed Hoosier war correspondent Ernie Pyle as part of a special Indiana Author Series sponsored by OASIS and the Indiana Historical Society from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 10, at the Glendale OASIS office, 6101 North Keystone Avenue in Indianapolis. My lecture comes from my book Ernie Pyle: The Soldier's Friend, published by the IHS Press in 2006.

The series, which also includes authors Wes D. Gehring and Michael S. Maurer, is an exclusive offer to IHS and OASIS members. A book sale and signing will follow each presentation. From 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, July 17, Gehring will examine the life and times of Indiana comedian Red Skelton. Maurer will discuss contemporary female Hoosier leaders from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 24.

Call (317) 233-5659 to register for the programs or to purchase an IHS membership prior to registration.
