Would you like to punch up your prose with writing help from a professional writer? Would you like to transform your swirling thoughts and feelings into written words with better skill?

Post-Tribune columnist Jerry Davich is hosting a “Writing 101 Workshop” for aspiring writers, veteran wordsmiths and anyone who simply wants to learn more about the joys, pains and nuances of writing, whether it’s for personal enjoyment, professional purposes or to better organize your thoughts into the written word.

Jerry, who’s earned more than 50 writing awards for his work, writes at least 1,000 words - every day - for his Chicago Tribune Media columns, magazine stories and book projects. He will share what he has learned over the course of his 25-year career.


Registration is required through the library.

About the branch

The Merrillville branch library encompasses over 114,000 sq ft of electronic and print resources, and visual and musical collections. The library offers free WIFI, public internet computers, rooms for quiet study, and public meeting rooms. Our vast collections of Lake County history and genealogy sources make the Merrillville branch a popular destination for research by visitors from all around the country.

Merrillville branch has three fantastic floors of informational and recreational materials. The main floor contains our popular collection of new books, large-print material, magazines and newspapers, teen, anime, and an enormous selection of music and DVDs. Our Genealogy Room has numerous resources including microfilm of local newspapers, obituary indexes, and many other historical resources. Our Book Sale room, open during select hours Monday-Saturday, is full of unique finds. Merrillville Branch is also home to our Talking Books Department, which serves residents with physical or visual disabilities.

The Upper Level includes tables for quiet study, a tremendous reference collection, our “Indiana Room” for specialized Hoosier historical research, and our locally known statue “The Reader” by artist Hermann Gurfinkel.

The entire lower level houses our bright and airy Children's Department where children will find fun games, books, music and magazines to fulfill their reading pleasure as well as attend engaging kids’ programs. This is also where our public meeting rooms are located, where our library events and programs are held.
