The Marian McFadden Memorial Lecture Series was established after the Indianapolis Public Library Foundation received a gift from the estate of Marian McFadden, Director of Public Libraries in Indianapolis from 1945-1956. This annual author lecture series, which typically takes place in the spring, was named in her honor. Learn more on our blog.
