ANDREW MALAN MILWARD
Andrew Milward will read from his prize-winning collection of short stories, The Agriculture Hall of Fame. These powerful stories limn the complexities and dilemmas of life in Kansas, a state at the center of the center of America. Milward explores the less visible aspects of the Kansas experience where its agrarian past comes into conflict with the harsh present reality of drugs, fundamentalism, and corporatism, relegating its agrarian identity to museums and amusement parks.
Andrew Milward is a Kansas native and a graduate of The University of Iowa’s Writers’ Workshop. The Agriculture Hall of Fame is the winner of the prestigious Juniper Award.
