‘The Unsettling of America’ talk
MARQUETTE – The Transition Marquette County Reading Group will discuss the book “The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture” by Wendell Berry at 7 p.m., Thursday in the Conference Room of Peter White Public Library, Marquette.
Berry argues that good farming is a cultural development and spiritual discipline, but that today?s agribusiness takes farming out of its cultural context and away from families. He notes that “we continue to suffer loss of community, the devaluation of human work, and the destruction of nature under an economics dedicated to the mechanistic pursuit of products and profits.”
It would help to have at least started to read the book.
