For readers in and around the Louisville, Kentucky locale, the CiRCE institute is proudly announcing that the winner of the 2012 Russell Kirk Paideia Prize at the conference on July 20th, 2012, is Mr. Wendell Berry:
Mr. Berry, a native of Kentucky, will be honored at the Paideia Prize-giving banquet, a highlight of the CiRCE conference: A Contemplation of Creation, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on July 18-21. Come celebrate Mr. Berrys life and work with us as we commemorate his dedication to the cultivation of wisdom and virtue. In his writings and in his teaching, both at the University level and at Highlands Latin School in Louisville, Mr. Berrys work is nourished by his recognition that education done right is education done in community and that justice establishes a harmony that sustains community, soul, body, and earth.
