What is the Novel Conversations Speakers Program?
Indiana Humanities invites public libraries to host a speaker from the 2015 Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award program of the Indianapolis Public Library Foundation. An honorarium will be provided for the following speakers, all of whom have agreed to participate in the program. The library is responsible for paying travel expenses, including mileage and hotel (if needed). Learn more: Novel Conversations Speakers Program Info 2015.
If accepted into the program, libraries will be responsible for contacting and scheduling the speaker, providing the venue, and handling local publicity. Indiana Humanities will also provide a communications package/host kit with resources specially designed to support publicity efforts & community outreach.
This program is made possible by a grant from The Glick Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.
