Wednesday Bookworms

The Wednesday Bookworms will discuss The Tallgrass Prairie Reader by John Price (University of Iowa Press, $25.00). Prairie author and advocate John T. Price wondered what it would take to restore tallgrass prairie to its rightful place at the center of our collective identity. The answer to that question is his Tallgrass Prairie Reader, a collection of literature from and about the tallgrass bioregion. Focusing on autobiographical nonfiction in a wide variety of forms, voices, and approaches including adventure narrative, spiritual reflection, childhood memoir, Native American perspectives, literary natural history, humor, travel writing and reportage he honors the ecological diversity of tallgrass itself and provides a range of models for nature writers and students.
