Remembering Bill Holm
Essayist and poet Bill Holm, who was nationally known for his distinctly Minnesotan writing, died this week at age 65.
Holm is the author of several works, including "Boxelder Bug Variations," "Coming Home Crazy," and his 2007 book, "Windows of Brimnes: an American in Iceland." That final book was named for his cottage near a small fishing village in Iceland, where he spent his summers.
In this program, Midday features some highlights from Holm's many public appearances.
