You can now see the Soul of a People talk filmed for CSPAN’s BookTV online. Good questions! Good discussion! Check it out.
This month marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of the WPA guide to Nebraska (Soul of a People includes the story of how that guidebook was edited by Rudolph Umland, a former hobo, and poet-novelist-painter Weldon Kees, among others.) It’s still a good read, and one of my favorites in the series.
