Marshall Public Library’s Fall Literary Series Kicks Off with “Writing the Farm”

Marshall Public Library

Harvest season will be underway when the Marshall Public Library’s Fall Literary Series begins with a look at how farm life has influenced some of the giants of literature. Tuesday, August 30 at 6:30 p.m., Idaho State University instructor and PhD candidate Jeff Howard will present “Writing the Farm: The Appeal and Role of the Rural in American Literature.” The three-part presentation includes an in-depth look how depictions of farmers and farming have changed since the times of Roman poet Virgil to John Steinbeck and beyond. Attendees will also get a chance to write about their own experiences with agriculture and Howard will read from his own work, “Nest Full of Pinkies.” The piece of creative non-fiction explores ideas of values, family, nostalgia, and farm life in the West. “Farming has been and continues to be an integral part of life in East Idaho,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian. “Beyond the impact to our region, the farm has played an influential role in shaping art and culture produced around the world.” For more information on the library’s Fall Literary Series or any of the other programs offered by the Marshall Public Library, visit
