Trip Shakespeare: The Bard Meets A Bend in the River

In the July issue of Minnesota Monthly is a short piece I did on the Great River Shakespeare Festival in my home town of Winona, Minnesota.  The rise of the festival in recent years has been heartening to watch. It has given a new dimension to the town that I wrote about earlier this year, and for which I received some wonderfully thoughtful commentary. (“Find a dumpster in some other town for your drugs, your friends, and your miserable life, and your lousy article!“) Anyway, Winona today is no doubt a different place than it was a quarter century ago.  And since Shakespeare moved in, the neighborhood has been much improved. (You can read the piece here.)
