EVPL is pleased to partner with Indiana Humanities to present a virtual author visit and Zoom book discussion for the 2020 One State / One Story program, featuring Jean Thompson’s novel, The Year We Left Home.

One State / One Story invites Hoosiers to engage deeply with a book as part of a statewide conversation tied to Indiana Humanities’ current theme, INseparable.

INseparable is a two-year Indiana Humanities initiative that invites Hoosiers to explore how we relate to each other across boundaries, real or imagined, and consider what it will take to indeed be inseparable, in all the ways that matter.

Please join us on Thursday, November 12, at 7:00 pm as we meet with Jean Thompson, National Book Award finalist, and discuss her 2011 novel about “the enduring, uniting power of place — why we choose or are forced to leave and when we decide to come home.”

The event will be on Zoom, and registration is required. The first six people to register will receive a free copy of the book. Copies are also available to be checked out from EVPL, or through Interlibrary Loan. You must be registered to participate, and registration will be limited to 12.
