“Wendell E. Berry was born in 1934 in Henry County, Ky. He earned B.A. and M.A. degrees in English at UK. After several years out of state, he returned to Henry County with his wife, Tanya, in 1965; they’ve been farming and writing ever since. Wendell is one of the most accomplished novelists of his era and a leading voice on modern agrarian issues. He is a recipient of The National Humanities Medal. Among his scores of fiction, nonfiction and poetry books:Nathan Coulter (1960), Standing on Earth (1991), The Mad Farmer Poems (2008) and most recently, Our Only World: Ten Essays (2015). Last year, he was the first living writer to be inducted into the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame.”
