This past weekend, 30 Hillsdale students had the opportunity to hear celebrated novelist and activist Wendell Berry speak at the fourth annual Front Porch Republic conference in Louisville, Kentucky.
The conference is held every year at various locations across America to “examine ways to promote a more comprehensive localist vision,” according to the Front Porch Republic website.
“[Berry] doesn’t give that many public appearances,” said senior David Roach, who attended the conference. “So it was really interesting to hear him speak.”
“It was great to hear various responses to our very Hillsdalean questions concerning the problem of modernity,” junior Aaron Schreck said.
