Today is the 80th birthday of Kentucky farmer/writer Wendell Berry!
I realize that there is some irony in doing this (Berry was, after all, the man who stood firm and penned “Why I am not going to buy a computer“), but to commemorate the occasion we offer the Top 10 online recordings of Berry to date. These recordings, some brief and some long, serve as a wonderful guide to the breadth and depth of Wendell Berry’s work: fiction, poetry, technology, community, land, etc., all the great genres and themes in which he has written.
Hope you enjoy these recordings!
#1- Poem: “It is Hard to Have Hope”
The poem begins at 7:00, though the intro by Bill McKibben is superb!
Happy 80th Birthday, Wendell Berry!!!
