Wendell Berry, Grant Wood and the American Farmer
A Reflection on Wendell Berry in Nashville

Interview with editor of Wendell Berry/Gary Snyder letters

I’ve just finished editing a book titled Distant Neighbors: The Selected Letters of Wendell Berry and Gary Snyder. It gathers more than forty years of letters between two of the most important environmental writers and activists of our time. I teach work by both writers and am noticing how ideas from their letters—about writing, religion, ecological design, land use, and economics—are already beginning to show up in my courses. A couple weeks ago, I attended the release of the book at the Festival of Faiths in Louisville, Kentucky, where Berry and Snyder participated in a conversation about the book with their long-time friend and editor, Jack Shoemaker.
