The former CEO of Angie’s List says he is forming a coalition aimed at promoting anti-discrimination laws in Indiana; The League of Women Voters of Bloomington and Monroe County is hosting three local candidate forums starting Monday, September 28; The Bloomington Plan Commission has approved the construction of a controversial apartment complex at 2780 South Walnut Street Pike; The Monroe County Plan Commission has recommended approving a controversial wireless communications tower near the county airport.
On Monday evening, the Monroe County Public Library and the Friends of the Library will host a program called the Power of Words. Congressman John Lewis will speak at the IU Auditorium about his series of graphic novels, titled March. The books chronicle the role of Lewis and many others in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. The congressman will be joined by two co-authors of the books: his chief of staff, Andrew Ayden, and an artist from Bloomington, Nate Powell. Earlier this week, Powell and Ayden spoke with the host of WFHB’s Interchange, Doug Storm, about the making of the novels. We bring you a portion of that conversation now for today’s WFHB community report.
