200 Years of Indiana History

Join the Friends of the Elkhart Public Library for their Annual Meeting at the Elkhart County Historical Museum on Tuesday, March 22nd. The Elkhart County Historical Museum will host a presentation and book signing by James H. Madison, author of Hoosiers: A New History of Indiana.

As we celebrate Indiana’s Bicentennial, James H. Madison, Professor Emeritus of History at Indiana University, will present an overview of our past–from Hoosier pioneers, through the Civil War, to the 21st century. His illustrated talk will highlight connections between past and present and help us think about our future. According to Lisa Guedea Carreño, Director of the Elkhart Public Library, “Keynote speaker James H. Madison is a renowned historian and author whose most recent book, Hoosiers: A New History of Indiana (Indiana University Press, 2014) has been described by fellow historians as ‘the best one-volume history of the state’ as well as a ‘compelling’ and ‘user-friendly’ narrative that ‘every Hoosier should want to read.’” The program “…invites a wide variety of people from our respective constituencies to come together to consider and celebrate Indiana’s rich history,” said Guedea Carreño.

The event starts at 6:00pm with a Friends Membership Meeting, followed by the presentation at 6:30pm and book signing afterwards. Hoosiers will be available for purchase at the event, or join the Membership Meeting and become a Friends member for a chance to win Hoosiers! The event is free and open to the public!
