Remembering Jon Hassler
When Minnesota author Jon Hassler died last week at 74, colleagues of his remarked on the impact of his work, both as a writer and a teacher. Midday remembers Hassler in his own words, as we rebroadcast an interview he did with MPR in 1999. We also talk with two of Hassler's longtime friends.
- Bill Holm: Fellow Minnesota literary figure and author of "Windows of Brimnes: An American In Iceland."
- Nick Hayes: Friend and colleague of Jon Hassler, and professor at St. John's University.
