Tim O'Brien

We were honored to speak with bestselling and award winning Tim O'Brien this morning. 

Tim O’Brien’s novels include The Things They Carried, If I Die in a Combat Zone, In the Lake of the Woods, among others.

 

 He won the National Book Award and in 2013 he was awarded the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing.

 

When Tim O'Brien looks around the vegetable house at Prairie River Greenhouse, he sees  "a sea of tomatoes." This makes sense; he and his wife Lynn are offering 70 varieties of heirloom tomatoes this year at their 2-person operation located on a city lot in the town of LaPrairie MN.
