  1. Writing on North Dakota: An author conversation with Clay Jenkinson and Sarah Vogel. Moderated by Amy Sisk of the Bismarck Tribune.

    December 2, 2021, 6:30 PM

    Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library, Meeting Room A

    Join us for a conversation between two well-known local authors, reflecting on their recently published books, how the people and landscape of North Dakota infuse their writing, and their hopes for state’s future. Clay Jenkinson is a humanities scholar, author, and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Thomas Jefferson Hour. His most recent book, The Language of Cottonwoods: Essays on the Future of North Dakota reflects on the state’s spirit of place and cultural identity, outlining a vision for a cultural renaissance at the heart of the continent. Sarah Vogel is an attorney, advocate, former North Dakota Commissioner of Agriculture, and author of The Farmer’s Lawyer. Her memoir, rooted in the state’s prairie populist history, recalls her David vs. Goliath legal battle on behalf of family farmers against the federal government during the 1980s farm crisis published as another crisis takes shape in rural America today.
