For The Love Of Soil

ForeEdge Books

Dirt: it's beneath us.  Physically, yes, but it is also celebrated by more people than you might think. 

Stop to consider how much we depend on the dirt beneath us, for places to grow food, for building materials, and a host of other uses. 

The celebration continues in the hands of 36 writers in the anthology Dirt: A Love Story

The writers range from artists to scientists.  Editor Barbara Richardson and contributor Jeanne Rogers drop by the studio to discuss the many ways dirt is used and praised.

Local appearance: Monday night, January 11th, at 7 PM in Ashland at Bloomsbury Books.
