Wendell Berry is often called a “prophet for rural America.” The 83-year-old essayist, novelist, and poet–one of our country’s most important living writers–has famously championed agrarian life while living and farming since 1965 in Henry County, Kentucky.

Now, he’s seeing industrial agriculture creep into the land he loves. The 2016 documentary Look & See: Wendell Berry’s Kentucky examines that changing landscape and the shifting values of rural America as seen in Berry’s mind’s eye.

Join KCPT for a free screening of the film followed by a discussion with local artists and community partners including The Writers Place and The Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum.

The event is co-presented by the Kansas City Public Library and the UMKC.
