The University of Indianapolis Kellogg Writers Series will feature two award-winning authors this week, part of UIndy's growing calendar of arts and cultural events.
Tonight, Kevin Young, a leading African American poet, will speak at 7:30 p.m. in the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center's Ruth Lilly Performance Hall. Young is a National Poetry Series winner whose works are often drawn from African American history.
On Saturday, Peabody Award-winning author Richard Rodriguez will talk at 8 p.m., also in Ruth Lilly Performance Hall. A Pulitzer Prize nominee, Rodriguez has made frequent appearances as an essayist on PBS's "The News Hour with Jim Lehrer." Both events are free.
