The CALS Alumni Association, CUGALA and the Cornell Northeast Corridor invite you to a special book event featuring Trent Preszler MS ’02, PhD ’12, CEO of Bedell Cellars.

Moderated by Shane Dunn ’07, board member, CALSAA and vice president, GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) Board of Directors


Trent Preszler thought he left South Dakota behind him when he came to Cornell to earn his Ph.D. in horticulture and became CEO of Bedell Cellars on Long Island’s North Fork. Estranged from his father since he came out in college, Trent received a call in 2014 from his dad to come home for Thanksgiving. Upon returning to South Dakota, he discovered his father was dying of cancer. When he passed away, his father bequeathed him one thing: his toolbox.

Trent’s memoir, “Little and Often,” details what he did with those tools, and reveals a story of self-discovery, perseverance and reconciliation.

During this hour-long discussion, Trent will talk about his memoir, take questions from the audience and provide a glimpse of the work that came out of that toolbox.

“Little and Often,” published by William Morrow, is available for purchase through most independent booksellers and can also be bought through Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

The audiobook, read by Matt Bomer, is also available online for download.
