Over the summer, we traveled the state to talk to our hometown authors. We asked them about reading and writing and the books that stay with you throughout a lifetime. 

Jerry and Norma Wilson are both writers and life partners. This past summer, we visited them at their house in Vermillion. A house that was built by their own hands with a specific purpose. They shared the story behind their residence and how its location in Southeast South Dakota has affected their work.

This weekend marks the 89th Academy Awards. Before we break out the snacks, we take deeper look at language in the movies and how it is used to identify people and, sometimes, to discriminate. On Monday, Lindsey Clouse presents "Dialect Discrimination from Disney to Django: How Hollywood Uses Language to Reinforce Racial Stereotypes" as part of the Black Hills State University speaker series. We talk with Lindsey about dialect, directors, and discrimination.

Augustana University

Art and poetry go hand in hand. Artist Nancy Losacker and and poet Norma Wilson show just how to combine the two creative outlets in their joint-exhibit and new written collection "Rivers, Wings, and Sky." The South Dakota Arts Council has supported the duo since 2008, displaying their work at galleries throughout the region. Their final exhibit is on display at Augustana’s Center for Western Studies until October 22. The two join Dakota Midday to discuss their partnership, their friendship, and how inspiration is shared and expanded through collaboration.
