Chippewa Valley Book Festival: Change and Resilience in the Heartland
The small community of Storm Lake, Iowa, has changed dramatically over Art Cullen’s 30-year career in journalism. Cullen, co-owner of The Storm Lake Times and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Storm Lake: A Chronicle of Change, Resilience, and Hope from a Heartland Newspaper, recognizes that rural communities are profoundly challenged and that climate change is already hampering food production now. But he has also identified solutions if we can accept changes such as immigration and a more resilient agriculture.
The Chippewa Valley Book Festival book sales committee will have copies of A Chronicle of Change, Resilience and Hope from a Heartland Newspaper available for purchase at this event. Stay for an autographing session following the presentation.
ART CULLEN is editor of The Storm Lake Times in Storm Lake, Iowa, where he won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 2017 for a series of editorials on surface water pollution in Iowa caused by agricultural drainage.
