He'll be part of Butler University's Vivian S. Delbrook Visiting Writers series, an under-appreciated treasure that brings to town top writers for free lectures.

Also on the Fall lineup: Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa (Sept. 23), novelists Lorrie Moore (Nov. 1) and Jonathan Lethem (Nov. 15) and more.

Film fans take note: Elmore Leonard's books have been the source for films including "Jackie Brown," "3:10 to Yuma," "52 Pick-Up," "Hombre" and many, many more.

For a full schedule for the series, call 940-9861.

  • Huge Lethem fan
    I'm actually more excited a bout Jonathan Lethem coming. I love this Motherless Brooklyn and wish it were made into a movie.
  • Good News
    That's great about Elmore Leonard. I'm definitely going to check that out as well as Lethem.

    I have potentially good news for you Michelle. Edward Norton has been working for awhile to make Motherless Brooklyn. I read an interview with him a few months back and he said he's working on the script.

  1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, faith...it is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
