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.

    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. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
