Golden Age of Literature: Meredith Nicholson

Wander over to the Indiana Historical Society at noon on 19 December for a glimpse at one of the Hoosier state's iconic authors. Historian Ralph Gray will discuss his biography of Meredith Nicholson (left) and the ways the IHS Press and Marion County Historical Society hope to introduce a new generation of readers to Nicholson’s brilliance. The author, diplomat and lecturer -- along with Booth Tarkington, George Ade and James Whitcomb Riley -- is considered a leader in creating the "Golden Age of Literature" in Indiana. Open to the public free of charge in the Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis, it's part of the IHS' Reading Life Series and sponsored by the Stratford at West Clay. For more information, call 317:232-1882.
