In recognition of a lifetime of letters exploring how humans can live more harmoniously with both the land and each other, Wendell Berry, the novelist, essayist, poet, farmer, and activist, will receive the 2013 Richard C. Holbrooke Distinguished Achievement Award at a November gala in Dayton, Ohio.
For the announcement, PKPR arranged an exclusive interview for Berry with the AP. Other coverage highlights included The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Salon, USA Today, Montreal Gazette, Publishers Weekly, GalleyCat, Mother Nature News, Library Journal, and Book Patrol.
