WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Author Harlan Coben will speak on April 16 as part of the Purdue University Spring 2015 Presidential Lecture Series, an ongoing series of diverse lectures on policy, leadership, culture and society. Coben and Purdue President Mitch Daniels will discuss “The Rules of Writing and When to Break Them.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be at 6:30 p.m. in Stewart Center’s Fowler Hall. During the talk, Coben and Daniels will discuss writing tips, inspiration, how-to's - and the insecurities that plague all writers.
