An Urbanite’s Journey To Understand The Heartland 11

Broadly speaking, an ideological gap exists between the more liberal coasts and the more conservative “fly-over” states. So why does that divide exist? Marie Mutsuki Mockett, a fiction and nonfiction teacher at Rainier Writing Workshop and visiting writer in the MFA program at Saint Mary’s College, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about her exploration of her family’s heritage in rural Nebraska to understand a more conservative way of life. Her book is “American Harvest: God, Country, and Farming in the Heartland.”
