Dispatches from a Northern Hoosier by Matt Werner


Meet northwest Indiana native and author, Matt Werner, as he discusses his newest book. Dispatches from a Northern Hoosier is a collection of articles, essays, and history Werner wrote over the past 11 years. Some appeared previously; others are published in this book for the first time. They capture people, places, and events from northern Indiana. Matt writes about diverse subjects including an artist who expressed his cancer through art, a steel worker who wanted to be a writer, a mysterious South Shore train wreck, a Union Mills farm boy who spent 42 years in Major League Baseball, La Porte County women’s basketball history, and tributes to everyday people like Warren Jones and Ron Clindaniel who made a difference in the lives of others.
