Storm Lake
Storm Lake: Change, Resilience, and Hope on the Horizon in America's Heartland | Art Cullen
3 posts | 2 read
When The Storm Lake Times, a tiny Iowa twice-weekly, won a Pulitzer Prize for taking on big corporate agri-industry for poisoning the local rivers and lake, it was a coup on many counts. In this candid and timely book, Art Cullen describes how the rural prairies have changed dramatically. Politics, agriculture, the environment, and immigration are all themes in Storm Lake, a chronicle of a resilient newspaper, as much a survivor as its town with Storm Lake's people at the book's heart.

The author, who is the editor of a very small Iowa newspaper, won a Pulitzer for editorial writing, and the book caught my attention because my mom grew up in this area of Iowa, but his writing style with the folksy tone and sentence fragments is killing me and I don't know if I can get through this book 😬

Smrloomis 🙄😕 Ugh, I don‘t think I could finish that! 3mo

Very insightful writing about my parents‘ home town area in Iowa. Author won Pulitzer Prize for reporting on Big Ag interference in small town politics. The book chronicles the dynamics behind the changing economics for Midwest farming which matches dad‘s experiences. Through stories of various individuals, some being my cousins, uncles and grandparents, he succinctly captures POV/values unique to the region that are still present in my life.
