Writing Out Loud: Eric Zorn
November 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Eric Zorn is a former American op-ed columnist and daily blogger for the Chicago Tribune who specialized in local news as well as politics. Zorn co-wrote the 1990 book Murder of Innocence, about Laurie Dann. The book served as the basis for a 1993 made-for-TV movie with the same name. When Alden Global Capital took control of the Chicago Tribune in the spring of 2021, Zorn was among the many columnists and other journalists who accepted a buyout offer from the company. His final column appeared on June 27, 2021.
Writing Out Loud was created in 1984 with a grant from Indiana Humanities. Since then, more than 140 authors have appeared at the library. Programs are supported with funds by the Patrons of Writing Out Loud, Michigan City Public Library Endowment Fund and Friends of the Library.
