The University of Louisville invites you to join in a special online conversation led by Dr. Gary Gregg, Director of UofL’s non-partisan Center for Political Leadership, and GlyptusAnn Grider Jones, the Center’s coordinator, as we consider Wendell Berry's novel "Hannah Coulter."

This is event is part of the Center's on-going virtual book club.

Gregg and Jones will explore several themes in the novel, noting how Berry's long-standing concerns with the modern economy, the disruption of modern society to traditional economies, the production of food and living at a humane scale, are relevant to today's global pandemic.

If you’re not familiar with Berry’s work or the vital impact this native Kentucky son has had on the movement for sustainability and living in right relationship with the earth and with each other, then this is the perfect excuse to bring yourself up to speed.

It’s free. Simply register in advance online here.
