If you're an IU student who has always dreamed of having a fabulous career in writing, editing, or publishing, then I have the perfect event for you! The IU Career Development Center and the IU Student Alumni Association will host a Writing, Editing, and Publishing Networking Night Tuesday, November 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the DeVault Alumni Center. Students will have the opportunity to hear five panelists discuss their careers and to network with them during the event.
This month, we published Jeff Moerchen's new book Ligonier: A Photographic Essay, which chronicles the life of the Hispanic community in this small northern Indiana city. I recently spoke with Jeff about photographing Ligonier and what he learned about the city while he was working on the project. Listen to our podcast:
A concert and booksigning will take place at KRC Catering in Bloomington Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. to celebrate the release of Monika Herzig's new book David Baker: A Legacy in Music. This concert will feature musical guests associated with the book including Melvin Rhyne and friends, Jamey Aebersold, the Tanager String Quartet, Monika Herzig, the IU Jazz Ensemble, members of the IU Jazz Faculty, and more. The program will musically complement each chapter of the book in sequence.
Herzig, Baker, and several contributors will sign copies of the book, which will be available to purchase at a discounted price.
Tickets are available at the Sunrise Box Office for $10 to the general public, and $5 to students, seniors, and Jazz from Bloomington members. Dinner is a separate charge, and can be purchased at KRC that night for $15.
Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit Jazz Masters in the Schools, which offers free educational jazz programs to area elementary schools.
This event is sponsored by Jazz from Bloomington, WFIU, NEA, KRC Catering, and Indiana University Press.
