Lawrence Diggs

Having traveled every continent except Antarctica, Lawrence Diggs has produced documentaries, written books and made presentations around the world. He founded The International Vinegar Museum in South Dakota, helped plan and build a Buddhist temple in San Francisco, and designed and created a national emergency medical system in Burkina Faso, which earned him that country’s Medal of Honor with gold stars. Diggs also teaches poetry in the state’s prisons, which led to the publication of Prose and Cons.  He has recently published The Value of the Void.
