Her Eras Tour broke worldwide record ticket sales, and more recently, her documentary broke the box office. That’s right; we’re talking about the pop culture phenomenon herself, Taylor Swift. Lately, it seems like you can’t look at a single screen without seeing Taylor’s face. And until she makes her way to Indianapolis in fall of 2024, screens are all local Taylor fans are going to get. Luckily, she’s been all over the news with her record-breaking album sales and sold-out arena tours. Even sports media is taking advantage of her stardom to boost their views and merchandise sales!
Here are a few ways to get your Taylor fix and keep your “Taylor Era” going!
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is Out Now
Put on your coziest cardigan and gather your besties because Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is in theaters now! At nearly three hours long, the movie is a tribute to her entire discography, inviting fans to sing and dance along to every song. Get ready for an immersive, live concert experience from the convenience of your local movie theater at a fraction of the price.
Attend IU’s Free Taylor Swift: The Conference Era
Hosted by the Indiana University Arts & Humanities Council, Taylor Swift: The Conference Era, seeks to gather Swifties and Swifty-adjacent thinkers for a meeting of the (master)minds focused on examining pertinent topics through the lens of sold-out stadium star Taylor Swift. There will be keynote talks, panels and workshops with over 30 national and global scholars. There will even be a Taylor Swift-themed artist market! The free event will take place at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on November 3 and 4, with adjacent events at First Thursdays and the Cook Center for Public Arts & Humanities. Want to get more involved? They’re accepting volunteers!
Try Book Recs from Library Staff
Swifties from every corner of the Library came together to recommend books and graphic novels inspired by all ten of Tay’s records. Separated by album and era, our booklist picks are further divided into recommendations for adults, teens, and children! Browse the illustrated PDF booklet we created or scroll through the booklist on our website.
Of course, you can check out all of the featured books from the Library, but you can also stream all of Taylor’s albums on Hoopla immediately with no waitlists! Listen and read and make sure to let us know what you think of the pairings. Tag us @mcplindiana with your recommendations, too!
