Can I Borrow A Book?
I do a thing called #caniborrowabook in which I ask a diverse and intelligent selection of people to expand my horizons with book of theirs to read.
Some people choose a book that is meaningful to them. Some choose a book they think will be meaningful to me. Some people just pick randomly off the book shelf or grab whichever book is within reach. The choice is completely up to them.
I've collected the books below.
Consulting the Genius of the Place by Wes Jackson
From Ted Heeren, Founder of Fresh Produce
"Wes Jackson combines old-time wisdom with new-time ideas in sustainable agriculture, things I know you're interested in."
Reflections from the North Country by Sigurd F. Olson
From Joe Bartmann, President of Dakota Resources
Joe found this book at a vacation rental in northern Minnesota. He liked it so much he stole it and sent a new copy back to the owner.
Shrill by Lindy West
From Abby Bischoff,
Executive Director of the Stockyards Ag Experience
“I want everyone to read it because I don’t know that I’ve ever felt a writer understand me as well. And I think as humans we all just want to be understood.”
