Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Oct. 13: A Conversation with George Will and Bill Bradley


Presentation of ideas with pundit and former politician

When: Thursday 13 October, 7:30 PM

Where: Butler University, Clowes Hall, 4602 Sunset Ave. Indianapolis

One of the world's most widely-respected and read journalists, George Will writes columns for Newsweek and The Washington Post, is syndicated in about 500 newspapers, and won the Pulitzer Prize for his work in 1997. He has provided commentary on ABC's Sunday morning show, This Week since 1981. Two-time All-American and captain of the 1964 gold-medal-winning U.S. Olympic men's basketball team, Bill Bradley chose a Rhodes Scholarship over the NBA, studying politics and philosophy at Oxford University before returning to join the New York Knicks for the next decade. He was later inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame and served in the U.S. Senate for 18 years.

Presented by Butler University 150th Anniversary Celebration

If you like this event, check out …Jean Bethke Elshtain the next night. You should go not just because Elshtain is smarter than Will and Bradley combined. She will discuss something Will and Bradley claim to be: a public intellectual. You should judge whether they meet standards she discusses and exemplifies.
