Thoughts on Teaching Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry at Williams College tonight

Berry has been writing about agriculture and food for more than 40 years, becoming a voice of reason and clarity in the confusion of words and political language surrounding farming and food. While politicians insist on the necessity of industrialization, Berry argues that the United States has moved us further and further away from good land practices.

"Does the production in the hands of fewer and fewer operators really serve the ends of cleanliness and health?" he asked In 1977.

Berry, who is the author of 50 books of poetry, fiction and essays, will speak this evening at the Williams College ‘62 Center at 8 p.m. on "Simple Solutions, Packaged Deals, and a 50-Year Farm Bill." The lecture is free and open to the public.
