FARGO — The Fargo Public Library's downtown location will host a talk by lawyer and North Dakota farm advocate Sarah Vogel at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6.

Vogel was a young lawyer in the 1980s when she brought a national class action lawsuit, pitting her against the Department of Justice in her fight for family farmers’ constitutional rights.

In her 2021 book, "The Farmer's Lawyer: The North Dakota Nine and the Fight to Save the Family Farm," Vogel tells the story of the legal battle and the family farmers she advocated for.

At Wednesday's event, Vogel will share her experiences and explain what prompted her to write the story.

Books will be available for purchase, and all ages are welcome to attend the event.
