February 4 (1pm to 3pm): Honoring the Land: Presenter, Steve Wick Steve Wick is an award-winning journalist and will discuss his 1996 acclaimed book, “Heaven and Earth: The Last Farmers of the North Fork.” The book documents the history of one of the oldest farming communities in America by tracing the lives of two families – the Tuthills and Wickhams. Wick addresses the powerful themes of generations of family and their strong connection to the land and of history as an ongoing force in people’s lives. As relevant today as it was 20- years ago, Wick along with photographer Lynn Johnson has created a moving elegy to a way of life that is rapidly disappearing.
