This week I'll be visiting friends at the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum to give a book talk about the recently released centennial edition of Bailey's environmental manifesto, The Holy Earth, which I edited and for which Wendell Berry contributed a foreword. You can join us on Saturday, January 9, at 12:00 noon at the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum, 922 S. Bailey Ave., South Haven, MI 49090.

Here's the press release from the museum:
Editor of 100th Anniversary Edition of The Holy Earth to speak
John Linstrom, editor of the new edition of Liberty Hyde Bailey's essential book The Holy Earth, will speak at the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum on Saturday, January 9 at 12:00. The new book, released in November by Counterpoint Press, restores the book's authoritative text and features new editorial content by Linstrom and a new foreword by writer Wendell Berry.

Following the talk he will be available to sign copies of the book. The book is now on sale at the museum and online at www.libertyhydebailey.org for $15.95.
There will be light refreshments available during the talk.
Linstrom is currently a doctoral student studying English at New York University. He also holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Iowa State University.
