Women in Agriculture Book Club

Webinar with author Carey Portell

6:00 pm
Brittany Fulton,
The Nebraska Women in Agriculture program has announced a book club series that will begin this fall with a look into the life of author Carey Portell, who will be a keynote speaker at the 2022 Women in Agriculture Conference in February.
Participants will read Portell’s book, “Facing Life Head On: Healing with Courage, Gratitude and Attitude,” and participate in a one-on-one webinar with her.
Now living with long-term disabling injuries after surviving being hit by a drunk driver, Portell has become an expert at breaking through limitations. A speaker, blogger and author, in “Facing Life Head On,” she shares her journey of self-growth through resilience, determination and the fine art of attitude adjustment.
“Carey Portell is a survivor and a thriver, but most importantly Carey is a mom, wife, neighbor, and friend,” reads a statement on Portell’s website. “She and her husband oversee a farm in mid-Missouri where she balances caring for her family while corralling cattle and horses.”
The book club registration will open Oct. 4 and the one-on-one session with Portell will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 17. The first 50 people to register will receive a free signed copy of Portell’s book.
Women in Agricultural plans to host a new book club quarterly. Featured books will cover a variety of topics such as inspiration, grain marketing, farm finance, estate planning and more. To find out more about the book club or to register, visit
