Huron author Larry Smith recently returned with his fifth novel “The Free Farm,” which is a sequel to “The Long River Home.”

While he’s published plenty of work before, including eight books of poetry and two literary biographies on Kenneth Patchen and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the 69-year-old is excited to continue the saga started in “The Long River Home,” which was set from the 1860s to 1960s.

Funcoast talked to Smith, a BGSU Firelands College Professor Emeritus of English & Humanties and Bottom Dog Press/Bird Dog Publishing founder, about the spirit of “The Long River Home.”
