This spring, join WTIU for a members-only day trip exploring the history of famed Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley!

This special experience will trace the life and legacy of Riley, including visits to his boyhood home in Greenfield, the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home in Indianapolis’ historic Lockerbie neighborhood, and the poet’s final resting place atop the highest hill in Marion County.

Including poetry readings, exclusive presentations, lunch, and round-trip bus accommodations, this day trip is truly an event custom-made for WTIU members.

Members will receive 2 passes for this exciting and educational event with a onetime membership contribution of $240, or an ongoing monthly sustaining contribution of $20. But the benefits of your membership do not stop with the James Whitcomb Riley day trip. You will also receive a DVD or Blu-ray copy of James Whitcomb Riley: Hoosier Poet, a one-year subscription to WTIU’s monthly program guide, one WTIU MemberCard, and access to WTIU Passport…giving you extended access to more than 1,000 hours of PBS and WTIU programs!

Ticket or event pledges must be made on a valid credit or debit card. Seats will be assigned in order of the date and time of pledge. Tickets are nonrefundable and nonexchangeable. All ticket packages include the popular, money-saving WTIU MemberCard, a one year subscription to WTIU’s monthly program guide and access to WTIU Passport.
