The Rural Life: A conversation with the New York Times' Verlyn Klinkenborg

Listen to this story
When it comes to writing and thinking about rural America, no one is more influential than Verlyn Klinkenborg.

Klinkenborg runs a small farm in Columbia County, New York, and sits on the editorial board of the New York Times.

His "Rural Life" column may be the mostly widely read chronicle of small-town and farm culture in the country.

Klinkenborg was in the North Country over the weekend for a writing conference hosted by Paul Smiths College and the Adirondack Center for Writing.

He sat down on the shore of Upper St. Regis Lake and spoke with Brian Mann.
