Dispatches From A Northern Hoosier

Matthew a. Werner

Dispatches from a Northern Hoosier is a collection of nonfiction articles and stories that chronicle people, places, and history of northern Indiana.

Matthew A. Werner grew up on a farm in Union Mills, Indiana, an area that inspired much of his writing. His diverse subjects include an artist who expressed cancer through art, a steel worker who wanted to be a writer, a farm boy who spent 42 years in Major League Baseball, the untold story of a famous performer who faced discrimination, Indiana's most infamous Congressman, a trip to the brewery, womens' basketball history, and tributes to everyday people who made a difference.

You may not have known the people mentioned in this collection, but you will come to wish you had. Then you'll see why Werner believes everybody has a story to tell.

Werner is the author of four other books: Season of Upsets: Farm boys, city kids, Hoosier basketball & the dawn of the 1950s, How Sweet It Is, A White Sox Life, and The Patch Players
