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.

Charles Simic, who served last year as the United States’ 15th poet laureate, is one of the nation’s most honored and distinguished poets. Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1938, he emigrated to the U.S. in 1954. Over the last few decades, he has published dozens of books of poetry and prose, including Selected Poems: 1963-1983; The Voice at 3:00 AM: Selected Late and New Poems; The World Doesn’t End, which received the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, and, in the past year, his most recent volume of poetry, That Little Something, and a collection of notebook entries, The Monster Loves His Labyrinth.

Simic has been prolific not just as a poet but as an editor, translator, and reviewer, and he has received numerous awards, including Guggenheim, National Endowment for the Arts and MacArthur fellowships, and, in 2007, the Wallace Stevens Award. He lives in Strafford, N.H., and is emeritus professor of English at the University of New Hampshire.
