But a lesser known aspect of the writer is the utopian vision he had for the future - influenced by his own political brand of socialism. These ideas became a novel called &#39;The Golden Book of Springfield.&#39;&nbsp;</p> Wed, 02 Oct 2013 12:00:00 +0000 Rachel Otwell 10076 at http://wuis.org Artist Explores Vachel Lindsay's 'Golden Springfield' With Installation
