Hannah Coulter by Wendell Berrry - Book Discussion

Date and Time: April 27, 2019, 10:00 AM CT

Location: Sterling Free Public Library, 138 N Broadway Ave, Sterling
(view on google maps)

Facilitated by Rachel Griffis, English Professor at Sterling College, and Amy Gard, Librarian at the Sterling Free Public Library

Hannah, the now-elderly narrator, recounts the love she has for the land and her community. She remembers each of her two husbands, and all places and community connections threatened by twentieth-century technologies. At risk is the whole culture of family farming, hope redeemed when her wayward and once lost grandson, Virgil, returns to his rural home place to work the farm.

This event is part of "Virtues of Place: Wendell Berry and Rural Kansas," public programs using the works of noted environmental writer Wendell Berry to spark dialogue about education in rural communities.

Sponsored by: Sterling College
