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.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

March 23: Learn what it was like “Editing Ray Bradbury”




March 23
“Editing Ray Bradbury”
Jonathan Eller, Professor of English, IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI
Associate Director, Institute for American Thought

“What does an author do when publishers do more than impose house styling on a novel? Not much, even if the author is Ray Bradbury. His 1972 novel The Halloween Tree was written for children of all ages, but his editors made nearly 2,000 changes to the text as they shaped it into a novel for pre-teens. Professor Eller will discuss the challenges he faced in editing, annotating and publishing the first restored edition of this seasonal classic.”

If this event sounds interesting, you should check out Jane Hirschfeld on the challenges of translating in a language she knows not on March 27.
