Keynote Speaker:
Jonathan Franzen’s great loves are literature and birds, and his most recent book, The End of the End of the Earth is a passionate argument for both. Jonathan has been a frequent visitor to the HGP farm to watch birds. Time magazine has called Franzen the "Great American Novelist" and NY Times referred to his "crackling genius." He is the author of Purity, The Corrections (winner of the National Book Award for Fiction), Freedom, among other novels, and five works of nonfiction and translation, including Farther Away and The Kraus Project. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the German Akademie der Kunste, and the French
Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

By attending the Sustain Supper, guests help support trainees transform their lives and gain skills they need to build their home in the world.
