In little more than two days, Prairie Talks will descend on Rugby, North Dakota -- the Geographical Center of North America -- to host its first event, featuring journalist and author, Alan Bjerga.
Among the places Bjerga visited while conducting research for his 2011 book (buy his book!), he spent time in East Africa. So, to add visual stimulation to what will already be a stimulating dialogue about agriculture and food security, attendees will enjoy select photographs of Tanzania and Ethiopia, thanks to the talent and generosity of Rugby native Jared Mack.
The Winner-Takes-All Trivia Challenge will mean that one person goes home with two bottles of Ethiopian wine that evening. But everyone will enjoy treats and coffee kindly prepared by volunteers of the Pierce County Farmers Union.
There's no doubt about it: when people come together for something good, life is beautiful!
