Star in the Hoosier Sky
The Indianapolis Star was a beacon for Indianapolis information and opinion since the turn of the last century. Its most shining moments were from 1950 through the early ’90s. Lawrence “Bo” Conner has told the story of his years working for, and then heading as editor, this prize-winning metropolitan newspaper. His book Star in the Hoosier Sky: The Indianapolis Star in the Years the City Came Alive 1950-1990 has been out of print for years and now appears for the first time in e-book form. Criminal trials, fascinating and quirky human interest scoops, Charles Manson and the Halloween explosion at the Coliseum, and the winning of the Pulitzer Prize in Journalism are told with verve and geniality in this new version of a classic—the only book about the great newspaper in its heyday.
