Wendell Berry among new members of American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Blog Watch: "Faith and Work in Wendell Berry's Fiction"

Blog Watch: On meeting Wendell Berry last year

Last year about this time my daughter, Ariana, took the bus down from New York City to come home for a night because Wendell Berry would be appearing at the Kennedy Center the next evening.  We did not have tickets so we arrived early to hopefully get coveted standby tickets.  We went so early we were the first ones in the line, which eventually got rather long.  As it turned out, we ended up front and center, as Wendell Berry delivered the most moving personal indictment of the destruction of the American family farmer and global capitalism, before thousands of people, for the annual Jefferson Lecture.
