Pig Years— Ellyn Gaydos

Ellyn Gaydos
Pig Years

Ellyn Gaydos received an M.F.A. in nonfiction from Columbia University. Her work has received the Richard J. Margolis Award for nonfiction writers of social justice journalism, and appeared in The Texas Review, Columbia Journal, and Ninth Letter, where she received the 2017 award for creative nonfiction. 

She is the author of a new memoir, Pig Years and lives in New Lebanon, New York.

As a farmer in Upstate New York and Vermont, Ellyn Gaydos lives on the edge between loss and gain. Her debut memoir, Pig Years, draws us into this precarious world, conjuring with stark simplicity the lifeblood of the farm: its livestock and stark full moons, the sharp cold days lives near to the land. A long time farmer, Ellyn’s love of farms is reflected throughout the book.
