Believe it or not, the COVID-19 pandemic has produced some “silver linings” for Indy Creatives, including Indianapolis writer and Earth Charter Indiana Executive Director, Jim Poyser.

WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Poyser about his new book, “The Last Actor,” a novella that he started 25 years ago and was brought to his creative attention once again thanks to a text from a friend.

A portion of the proceeds from book sales will help support Earth Charter Indiana and its many programs to increase awareness of climate change.
