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.
