Wendell Berry in the Big City

Mr. Wendell Berry of Kentucky will be in the Greater D.C. area this week, appearing at the Arlington Central Library Auditorium on Tuesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. His appearance is part of the "Arlington Reads 2010" program, which is devoted to the topic of "Know What You Eat: Food and Sustainability."

I led a library-sponsored discussion of Berry's novel The Memory of Old Jack several weeks ago, and based on the enthusiasm and great turn-out of that event, I am confident that Berry's appearance will generate a great deal of interest, and would advise those who are interested to come early. I suspect the Arlington Library Auditorium will seem a bit cramped before the evening is done.
