Apr 19,  · Hannah Coulter, by Wendell Berry. Hannah Coulter is a great book club choice. I think that reading Wendell Berry’s novels, essays, and poetry over several months could spark conversations so relevant to our times. I read somewhere of a woman who began inviting liberals and conservatives to occasional dinners after the election. In , Wendell Berry suggested to his friend, the photographer James Baker Hall, that he take pictures of Berry and his neighboring farmers pitching in on the “hot, dirty, itchy” work of the tobacco harvest. The pictures were reprinted with an essay by Wendell Berry by the University Press of Kentucky in as Tobacco Harvest: An Elegy.

Farmer, poet, essayist, and environmental writer Wendell Berry is acclaimed for his ideas regarding the values inherent in an agricultural society. Place, community, good work, and simple pleasures are but a few of the values that form the bedrock of Berry's thought. Conversations with Kentucky Writers was more than three years in the making, as Beattie traveled across the state and beyond to capture oral histories on tape. Her exhaustive knowledge of these authors helped her draw out personal revelations about their work, their lives, and the nature of writing.

Sep 19,  · Category: Wendell Berry. Conversations Fifty Years Ago. Published on September 19, The book was not widely read on publication in , but it has been granted a second life through republication and the sustained admiration of poet, essayist, and activist bell hooks, another Kentuckian who went to Stanford a decade after Berry and later. Wendell Berry very rarely gives television interviews, but in he agreed to sit down with Bill Moyers as part of a conference at St. Catharine's College. Take 40 minutes to watch this. Berry speaks on topics close to his heart, and he reads several poems aloud. It's worth the watch just for that!
