St. Clair, Gugin Offer Indiana’s 200 at Sunday Book Talk

Historians Linda Gugin and Jim St. Clair will be at Destinations Booksellers on Sunday, Dec. 13, at 2 p.m. to present Indiana’s 200: The People Who Shaped the Hoosier State, their latest collaboration as editors of Indiana history.


More than 100 authors contributed to this large-format collection of biographical notes on prominent and/or significant people who have called Indiana home.

The Indiana Historical Press is the publisher of the book, which sells for $39.95. The authors will give a brief presentation on the genesis and creation of this historical keepsake as Indiana enters into its bicentennial year, and take questions afterward. Several local contributors are also expected to be in attendance during the event.
