“For humans to have a responsible relationship to the world, they must imagine their places in it…”

In front of hundreds, Berry took his place among former recipients (Walker Percy, Toni Morrison, Arthur Miller, John Updike, and many others) to deliver a resonating essay on the beauty of place, imagination, and pleasure, titled “It All Turns on Affection.”

Berry spoke to the potential of imagination, advocating that it isn’t an escape into a fantasy realm, but is a visionary faculty grounded in reality; it enables one to see the world and the self most clearly.
