Bookmark Indy is a one-of-a-kind literary exploration of Indianapolis through the eyes of the writers who’ve called this city home. Physical markers connect pen to place, showcasing the stories of some of Indy’s most significant past and present authors—from Kurt Vonnegut, Mari Evans, and Booth Tarkington to John Green, Maurice Broaddus, and Adrian Matejka. The life and work of each writer are brought to life on Bookmark Indy’s mobile-friendly website, which features contemporary artwork and performances inspired by Indianapolis authors and the places that influenced them; immersive audio, video, and photography; and works of the writers themselves.
Bookmark Indy, a project of Indiana Humanities, is made possible thanks to generous support from Lilly Endowment Inc., the Herbert Simon Family Foundation, The Public Collection and the Arthur Jordan Foundation. The launch of Bookmark Indy in spring 2021 is presented by The National Bank of Indianapolis. Additional in-kind support is provided by Visit Indy, Art Strategies, and SmallBox.
