This date needs no further introduction. It is the official release date of my new novel, PIG FARM.
FROM THE ENDORSERS:
“Parnell’s stories reflect an organic sense of the people, land, water, culture and history of the distinctive Ozarks region.”Dr. John E. Moore, Jr.
“Todd Parnell has more interest in pork than a politician. PIG FARM is his fictional foray into his ancestral home, Arkansas’s Buffalo River. … His writing combines humor with history and adventure with mystery, seasoned with tall tale hilarity and a dash of depravity.”Fred Pfister
Over the past several years I’ve written silly stuff, I’ve written factual stuff, I’ve written family stuff, but I don’t think I’ve written about anything I’m more serious about than this. It’s my history, it’s my hope, it’s our heirs’ future.
And, I’m going to talk about it in a formal presentation, with magnificent photographs, to environmental groups, to university students, to senior activists, all with the express intent of stirring emotion and fomenting action. Never before has our country been more in need of leadership on all environmental fronts, from water to air to climate change, and all points between.
I hope you will read PIG FARM, enjoy it, and act on it. I hope you will come out and visit with me when I’m in your community. I hope you will stand with so many who are fighting against the rollback of fifty years of progress in protecting and preserving our environment, and reclaim an agenda more focused on our children and grandchildren than short term profits.
