Wendell Berry: "The Wisest Man in America"?

Wendell Berry awarded in Tulsa, December 7-8

When author Wendell Berry comes to town to accept the Tulsa Library Trust's 2012 Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award on Dec. 7, he will bring with him his reputation as a principled presence in American letters, as well as that of being an outspoken critic of industrialized farming.

The award, which consists of a $40,000 cash prize and an engraved crystal book, gives formal recognition, on behalf of the Tulsa County community, to internationally acclaimed authors who have written a distinguished body of work and made a major contribution to the field of literature and letters.

Berry will speak at the black tie awards dinner and will give a free public presentation at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 8 at Central Library, Fourth Street and Denver Avenue.
