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.

April 25: Milton Viorst talks about "Storm from the East: The Struggle between the Arab World and the Christian West"


A talk by noted Middle East analyst Milton Viorst and a signing of his soon-to-be-released book, "Storm from the East: The Struggle between the Arab World and the Christian West"

When: Tuesday April 25, cocktails at 5:45, dinner at 6:30

Where: Check with Courtenay Weldon: courtenayweldon@comcast.net

Milton Viorst has covered the Middle East as a journalist and scholar since the 1960s. He was The New Yorker’s Middle East correspondent, and his work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and The Wall Street Journal. "Storm from the East: The Struggle between the Arab World and the Christian West" (scheduled to be released April 18) is Viorst's sixth book on the Middle East.

Viorst will be speaking to the indianapolis Committee on Foreign Relations. It is sure to be an interesting event, perhaps an appropriate way to spend Holocaust Remembrance Day. Check with Courtenay Weldon for details.

For an excerpt from Viorst's new book, some links to some of his other articles, and a few critical comments, go to IndyBuzz's sister site, TheNext Indy.
