Wednesday, May 5, 2021 - Kent Burkhardsmeier grew up in North Dakota. He’s a photographer and a poet. Those two skills are on display in his new book, “Awareness: Whispers From Nature.” Like his first book in this series, it’s an expression of his journey seeking peace in nature. Everyone who pledges during Main Street today will be entered in a drawing to receive our signed copy of Kent’s book. ~~~ Another writer who grew up in North Dakota is Deb Marquart. She’s now teaching at Iowa State in Ames, and is Iowa's Poet Laureate. She reads an essay for us titled ““Dimes.” ~~~ Our third literary voice of the day is NDSU distinguished professor of history, Tom Isern. He shares a Plains Folk essay titled “The lay of the Last Longhorn.”
