Each year at our annual conference we give the Russell Kirk Paideia Prize, awarded for lifetime contribution to the cultivation of virtue. In July 2012 noted novelist, essayist, farmer, and teacher, Wendell Berry, received the award in Louisville, KY. During his acceptance speech he presented a new story, An Empty Jacket. This video is that acceptance presentation.
Please pardon the relatively low production quality. The room was quite dark.
