Wendell Berry at road protest show

More than 500 people who paid $10 to $15 a ticket packed a sold-out show at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Center in Lexington to protest a proposed connector road that would stretch from Nicholasville over the Kentucky River to Interstate 75 in Madison County ...

Wendell Berry, who has spent a lifetime writing about rural community, read a fanciful account of the "Buzzard General Assembly." The buzzards, he said, "unanimously concluded and instructed me to tell you that they foreswear all rights and claims to the carrion, with the giblets and gravy thereof, that would be produced by said connector."

Is there any way you can post Wendell Berry appearances prior to the event? Or do you, and I'm just missing it? Although I love hearing of them, it's disappointing to read about them after the fact if they're close enough for me to attend.

Mardee, that of course is the optimal path. I post appearances as soon as I learn of them. Sometimes, alas, this means it is very close to or even after the event itself. Because I have no direct access to Mr. Berry's itineraries, I've got to work with what shows up via my own sources & searches. I would think that The Berry Center (www.berrycenter.org) would be well-positioned to set up a reliable listing of events. Maybe we should ask.
