Ben Johnson was born and bred in Oklahoma. Despite his best efforts to escape it, the red dirt, blue skies, pump jacks and the multi-generational effects of the Dustbowl call to him, the way some certain river calls to each salmon. He grew up disappearing into stories, sermons and the myths we live inside. He's lived in Vermont since 2004, been a college librarian, and has spent more than fifteen years in and around organized labor, on both sides.
