Fans of crime fiction will want to mark Dec. 6 on their calendars. That's when Elmore Leonard, author dozens of books including "Get Shorty" and "Rum Punch" comes to town. 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.
