Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard

A film by Morgan Atkinson.


  1. Thanks for this. My son and his family live in Union, KY and I have been on and over the river a number of times. I hadn't known of th Hubbards before and will definitely explore some more.

    1. I hadn't known of them either and I grew up in KY - happened upon them through a Wendall Berry writing and then saw that Morgan Atkinson had made a film. I would like to know more about these people who follow a different drummer in our midst. They are like monks, or the Amish, but more independent. I'm thinking about getting the full 1 hour documentary and just showing it to some friends. Pass the story around.

    2. I was just at a friend's house and she brought out from her bedroom a painting of Harlan Hubbard. She is originally from Madison Indiana and knew all about Harlan!

    3. If you get to see the full documentary do please let us know what you think...

    4. I ordered it last night, J. There are also a couple of books by Harlan and one by Wendall Berry. I'm going to start with the film. I do like Harlan Hubbard's art and have a feeling that I will respond more visually than intellectually.
