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. But he has also identified solutions, if we can accept changes such as immigration and a more resilient agriculture.
>> Our book sales committee will have copies of A Chronicle of Change, Resilience and Hope from a Heartland Newspaper available for purchase at this event. Please join us for an autographing session following the presentation.
