All are cordially invited to meet Art Cullen, a 1980 St. Thomas alum, who is half owner and 25 percent of the news staff of The Storm Lake Times (founded by his brother John). He won the Pulitzer Prize in Spring of 2017 for his editorials taking on corporate agribusiness for fouling the state's water and despoiling its soil. He was profiled by the New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, Katie Couric and many others after winning. Storm Lake is his first book, and it is about small Iowa farm towns.
