Bill Holm: Gone, but not forgotten
This photo appeared yesterday on the Star Tribune Books section's Facebook page (managed by editor Laurie Hertzel) with the following inscription: "Gone, but not forgotten. At the Minnesota State Fair, poet Bill Holm, rendered in seeds."
Bill Holm's work appears in the brand-new compilation Our Neck of the Woods, edited by Daniel J. Philippon, and in The Quiet Hours, a book of photography by Mike Melman, in which Holm has an essay that compares Melman's work to that of Walt Whitman and Carl Sandburg.
Also: this spring, the University of Minnesota Press will publish the 25th anniversary commemorative edition of Bill Holm's The Music of Failure.
