Turn Here Sweet Corn, An appearance by author Atina Diffley
7pm Prairie Lights 15 S Dubuque Street, Iowa City
Atina Diffley will read from her new book, Turn Here Sweet Corn. In telling her story of working the land, coaxing good food from the fertile soil, Atina Diffley reminds us of an ultimate truth: we live in relationships—with the earth, plants and animals, families and communities. A memoir of making these essential relationships work in the face of challenges as natural as weather and as unnatural as corporate politics, her book is a firsthand history of getting in at the “ground level” of organic farming.
