Verlyn Klinkenborg Signing and Giveaway
Verlyn Klinkenborg, an award-winning American non-fiction author who lives in the RI region, has been writing literary meditations about the joys, rewards, and tribulations of farm life for years now, most notably as a columnist for The New York Times, where he serves on the editorial board, and as the author of The Rural Life, a collection of his Times columns, among many other books. Recently he has turned to writing about writing, a change reflected in his new book, Several Short Sentences About Writing. This year he is also teaching a “rigorous” upper-level class in nonfiction writing at Bard College.
Oblong Books in Millerton, one of our region’s literary treasure troves, is hosting a reading by Klinkenborg of his new book, September 13 at 6 p.m. In conjunction with that event, Rural Intelligence will be giving away signed copies of The Rural Life (more apropos for us, natch). All you have to do is write several short sentences about what you most appreciate about your rural life in the comment section below, or write a post on the Rural Intelligence Facebook page. The deadline is next Tuesday, September 18. Winners will be chosen at random and announced on Thursday; copies of the book will be mailed out the following week.
