The Announcement

July 2, 2020

I couldn’t wait until next week!

A piece I wrote based on a concept from this blog — “shelter” as a noun rather than a verb — was just published in our local arts magazine, Voice of the River Valley. I am beyond proud to have my words next to those of my friends and neighbors. They are a bunch that truly appreciates PLACE, as the name might suggest.

I’m a guest author for the “Driftless Terroir” series (note the extra “i”; we’re not trying to scare anybody). Link here. Check out the cover while you’re at it, fittingly provided by a friend who’s a talented photographer and devoted prairie restoration volunteer.

  1. What a lovely piece! Thank you for sharing and Congratulations! Perhaps, this is why I still live here, in the Midwest. after having moved here over 40 years ago. It is truly beautiful here.

  2. Lovely writing, Grace, and wonderful to see it published “in place.” Sometimes it’s challenging to explain why those of us who live in the Driftless Area choose to stay. I look forward to a time when all of us choose ecology over all other values.
