This week, you can win a pair of passes that will get you in to just about every event in this year’s Ann Katz Festival of Books—that’s nearly three weeks of literary events at the JCC, including appearances by humorist Annabelle Gurwitch, “White House Garden Cookbook” author Clara Silverstein, and Miss Manners herself, Judith Martin.

There's also films, art events and more. For a full lineup, click here. And note that the only event not included with the prize passes is Mickey's Corner with Michael Feinstein.

All you have to do is name your favorite Katz or cats below. I’ll pick one winner at random.

Good luck.

  • Favorite Katz
    Irwin Katz, founder of Katz Sapper Miller, honored his wife's memory and her love for books with a personal gift to the JCC to help underwrite this jewel in the literary crown of Indianapolis. This nonagenarian is a WWII vet, worked at Fort Ben during the war, lost his entire platoon at Battle of the Bulge, married his sweetheart, stayed in Indy after the war instead of returning to his native New York and became a leader in the city. He is a real hero and a Cool Katz!

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
