"Author Wendell Berry to lecture in Seattle"

"I was in Washington, D.C., on May 4th and heard a speech by the Prince of Wales that impressed me very much," says Wendell Berry, the 77-year-old essayist, novelist, poet and political activist who appears Tuesday at Benaroya Hall as a guest of Seattle Arts & Lectures.

"It was a substantive, careful, constantly thoughtful speech on the industrialization of agriculture," he says. "To hear a public person speak thoughtfully at length about a complex issue is a rare thing. Politicians are under greater pressure to raise money than to make sense."
