Contemporary Indiana writers to read from new anthology, ‘Not Like the Rest of Us’
The Purdue University Northwest Department of English will present contemporary Indiana writers Lucrecia Guerrero, Janine Harrison, Michael Poore and Barbara Shoup, who will read from the new anthology, “Not Like the Rest of Us,” Thursday, Nov. 3.
The event is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Hammond Campus’ Immersive Theater of the Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS), located in the Powers Computer Education Building. Admission is free.
A question and answer session and book signing will follow the reading.
“Not Like the Rest of Us: An Anthology of Contemporary Indiana Writers” features the work of more than 70 authors. It is published by INwords, an imprint of the Indiana Writers Center (IWC), and an officially endorsed Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project.
‘Not Like the Rest of Us’
Barbara Shoup, IWC director, said the title is derived from an essay, “Not Like the Rest of Us: A Hoosier Named Cole Porter,” by Cathy Day. Shoup said Day’s essay captured the “peculiar nature” of Hoosiers’ relationship to the arts and fit the aim of the new anthology.
“Not Like the Rest of Us” includes the works of Hoosier writers of fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry, celebrating authors who bring honor to Indiana now, extending the appreciation of our literary heritage to the 21st century, according to Shoup.
