Last Tuesdays at 7

March 30 @ 7:00 pm

The second in a new KVML monthly discussion series, on March 30th KVML will discuss The Unsettling of America by Wendell Berry with a distinguished panel of guests. An acclaimed novelist, environmentalist and farmer, in The Unsettling Berry argues for the benefits of a deeper connection to the land and local community, and warns of the consequences of human exploitation. First published in 1977, The Unsettling of America is an American classic that in Berry’s own words “has not had the happy fate of being proved wrong.”

In fact, Berry’s work is every bit as relevant today as ever. Much of today’s agribusiness takes farming out of its cultural context and as a result, Americans have become more estranged from the land that supports it. KVML are thrilled to welcome the following renowned guests to discuss Berry’s work and the over fifty years of activism and art that it has inspired:

Scott Russell Sanders – Award-Winning Author / Distinguished Professor of English, Indiana University / Ph.D. University of Cambridge

Panelists will be on hand to discuss their connection to Berry and his work, and interact with our registered attendees.
