Laureate Series: Holly Jorgensen

Laureate Series: Holly Jorgensen

Tuesday | September 3 | 7:00pm
Blue Heron Coffeehouse | 162 E 2nd St

Holly Jorgensen will read from her memoir Enchanted: Reflections from a Joyfully Green and Frugally Rich Life. She will also share some of her extraordinary photographs.

Holly Jorgensen lives simply and close to the earth, with passion, serenity, and mindfulness. In Enchanted, she shares her secrets—antidotes to that pressure to buy, buy, buy. Whether rescuing junk or discovering life lessons from a half-wild mustang, a totem pole, or legendary musicians, Holly pursues true value—grace and grit rather than status and glitz. Her stories speak of the circle of life, from using discarded objects to transform a neglected property into a beloved homestead to her friendships with wild critters.

Holly’s intimate nature photography and pictures of upcycled projects reveal how embracing imperfection can free us to live a joyfully green and frugally rich life. A Q&A and book signing will follow the presentation. This event is co-sponsored by the Blue Heron and the City of Winona.

The Laureate Writer’s Series is sponsored by the City of Winona’s Fine Arts Commission. The City of Winona is a partner of River Arts Alliance.
