Local author Maurice Broaddus will take part in the Kellogg Writers Series at the University of Indianapolis with readings from his work 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30 in the Schwitzer Student Center, 1400 Campus Drive.

Broaddus will read from his latest novel, “Pimp my Airship,” which takes place in a futuristic Indianapolis and addresses societal issues.

“America tends to mythologize the idea of the heroic loner, but it’s a lie,” Broaddus said in a press release. “No one makes it on their own. As solitary as the art practice can be at times, it’s good to surround yourself with folks who have been through the struggles, are in the trenches alongside you, can encourage you because they get what you are going through.”

Broaddus is active in the local writing community and started an annual conferenced called Mo*Con, which is going into its 13th year. He recently joined Indy Literary Arts and teaches at the Indiana Writers Center.

“Hopefully I’ll make you think and maybe provoke you to action,” Broaddus said. “At the very least, I got jokes.”

Visitors can park for free at the university, and the Red Line drops off on campus.
