The Marian McFadden Memorial Lecture Series was established after the Indianapolis Public Library Foundation received a gift from the estate of Marian McFadden, Director of Public Libraries in Indianapolis from 1945-1956. This annual author lecture series, which typically takes place in the Spring, was named in her honor.

The lecture is made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to the Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
