Taking the Porch to Salina, KansasBy Jason Peters for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
Rumor has it there will be Front Porchers attending this year’s Prairie Festival (Sept. 24-26) at Wes Jackson’s Land Institute in Salina, Kansas. It so happens that two tutelary spirits of localism, Wendell Berry and Scott Russell Sanders, are on the ticket. This isn’t one to miss.
If you decide to go, make yourself known in the flesh. My tent has a B-A. F.P. (but no rocking chairs).
