A few months back (during a busy autumn), E.K.M. made a short speech at the Indianapolis Public Library. The occasion was the launch of a new Center for Black Literature and Culture at their Central Library (among the most beautiful libraries in the U.S.). In the speech E.K.M. tells of growing up around Indianapolis and his personal experience with libraries (in general) and a funny story that took place in that actual library. (We’ve added some pictures of the library so you can get a sense of the building.) The video of Edward’s speech runs about 16 minutes and if you’re a fan of the author (or a little curious) we think you’ll enjoy it!
