Poet, novelist, philosopher, environmental activist, cultural critic, and farmer Wendell Berry will present the next Chubb Fellowship Lecture as a guest of Timothy Dwight College and the Yale Sustainable Food Project (YSFP).
Join us for a public conversation with Wendell Berry at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7th.
A pioneering and influential advocate for change, Berry has spent more than 50 years helping to shape the movements for agricultural and ecological sustainability. His poetry and essays flow from the rich agrarian tradition of American writing, and Berry’s relationship to his Kentucky farm has been compared to that of Thoreau’s to the forest — a place that nurtures his thinking about the value of physical labor, self-sufficiency, and communities of people living in harmony with the natural world.
The Louisville choral group Voces Novae will perform poems of Wendell Berry set to music by Harry Pickens. This will take place in Louisville at The Church of the Ascension, 3:00 pm on Sunday 24 November.
There is no information given about this video, but it appears to be of Mr. Berry's presentation last night at the Cambridge Forum, where he received Pen New England's annual Howard Zinn “People Speak” Award.
