Wendell Berry cited in review
Blog Watch: Appreciating Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry at Warren Wilson College

Before the reading began, Berry said of Warren Wilson, “This is a great place; this is an exceptional place.” After his reading, he fielded several questions that had been submitted beforehand by students at this “exceptional place.”

In responding to a question about needed change in our society, Berry said, “The great change we can make is to change the standards.” He later optimistically added, in replying to another question: “No matter how bad things get, somebody who’s willing can make it a little better.” He also told the students, “You are very fortunate to be at a small college,” noting that Warren Wilson “is not a battleship, but a canoe” where students can make a real difference.
