Remembering Minnesota Writer and Poet Bill Holm

Filed in Gather Books Essential by on February 26, 2009 0 Comments

Minnesota author Bill Holm has died:

Holm, who was also am English professor at Southwest Minnesota State University, was 65. […] Holm wrote at least 10 books of essays and poetry, including “Boxelder Bug Variations,” “Coming Home Crazy,” and the “Heart Can Be Filled Anywhere On Earth.” His work most often reflected the sensibility of life in a small town.

His appearance in the MPR “A Literary View” series (program audio page from March of 2004, the audio link requires RealPlayer) is still available, and I think it reveals quite a bit of the man and his work.

What do you recall of him, or of his writings? What would you like others to discover…or remember?
