At GPWC we’ve aimed to start conversations and light fires in people, and there was plenty of that at our 2015 iteration. Brookings was full of fired-up, energetic people who care. We couldn’t have asked for a better result (or better presenters).
Stay tuned for a photo gallery of this year’s event and keep your eyes peeled next winter for news of our 2016 conference–our 40th anniversary!
Join us tonight at the SDSU Performing Arts Center at 7:00pm for a talk on “Who Really Feeds the World” by Dr. Vandana Shiva. Don’t miss it! It’s our last event for 2015–brought to you in cooperation with the Harding Lecture Series.

We’re still in “recovery mode” here at the GPWC, but one of our presenters–the indefatigable Randy Brown (a.k.a. Charlie Sherpa) has written a great recap at http://www.redbullrising.com/2014/04/notes-from-2014-great-plains-writers.html. Thanks, Randy!
