English Department Headlines
Pulse of the heartland: Ohio, and why its voices matter, explored by Professor David Giffels in latest book
The book recounts Giffels' recent tour of a uniquely diverse state that, from its smokestacks to “stubble-plains,” is in many ways a cross-section and microcosm of the country. He speaks with factory workers and farmhands, politicians and poets, startup brewers and booksellers, taking the pulse of Ohio to diagnose the nation.
