Literary Rewind: Rich Fisher's Studio Tulsa Interview with Wendell Berry

In case you missed it, the acclaimed author Wendell Berry was in town last month to accept the Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award at the Tulsa City-County Library.

Berry is a Kentucky-based poet, novelist and essayist who has written extensively about the human connection to the land. His December talk at the library was standing room only, a sign of Berry's popularity among a cross-section of Tulsa-area readers.

Rich Fisher of Public Radio Tulsa interviewed Berry before his Tulsa appearance, an interview that is worth a second hearing. A link to the interview can be found here.
