Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and editor of the Storm Lake Times Art Cullen will read from Storm Lake: A Chronicle of Change, Resilience, and Hope from a Heartland Newspaper.  

"Cullen’s book demonstrates the important role that local editors play in standing up and speaking to power in America...Storm Lake is an engaging, folksy read about how a small-town newspaper editor copes with existential threats to a way of life and an industry vital to American democracy in a state known for its extremes of weather, economics, and politics."—The National Book Review

His commentaries on politics, immigration and the environment have been published by The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian, along with regional newspapers and news sites.
