THE GOLDEN AGE: INDIANA LITERATURE (1880-1920)

THE GOLDEN AGE: INDIANA LITERATURE (1880-1920)
Drawn from collections at IHS, Indiana State Library and Indiana University’s Lilly Library, the exhibition at the La Porte County Historical Society Museum explores what came to be known as the “Golden Age of Indiana Literature.”  From 1880 to 1920, Hoosier authors achieved both national prominence and popular acclaim.  A 1947 study found that Indiana authors ranked second to New York in the number of bestsellers produced in the previous 40 years.  The exhibit concentrates on the lives and careers of four individuals – George Ade, Meredith Nicholson, Booth Tarkington and James Whitcomb Riley.

Dunebrook’s 6th Annual Dragon Boat Races
Great teambuilding activity! Teams race in three heats in 41’ canoe-like vessels that have an ornate dragon head and tail on the bow and stern. The course is 300 meters - long enough to be competitive yet able to be conquered. The fastest team earns bragging rights and a dragon trophy. Dunebrook provides the boat, a steersman (to keep the boat on course), paddles, life preserver, drum and team bandana. Teams bring the energy and spirit. Spectators can enjoy child-friendly activities and food vendors as they cheer on their favorite team. This is a free, family-friendly event. Sponsorships with benefits available at various levels. More details available at www.dunebroook.org or contact Pam Henderson at 219-874-0007 or pam@dunebrook.org. Proceeds support Dunebrook’s parenting programs and Child Advocacy Center.
