7/23 MN Reads: "Everyday Love" by Peggy Trojan

It was just like everyday silver or everyday dishes; it wasn't something special you hauled out for company.

That's what Peggy Trojan saw growing up and writes about, in this moving chapbook of poetry about her parents and their "everyday love."

Peggy Trojan's chapbook of poetry, "Everyday Love," was nominated for the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award (NEMBA) in Poetry and is self-published.  All this summer, we'll be bringing you books about the Northland, from the Northland by NEMBA award-winners and nominees.

"My father never gets the hang of being dead ... This afternoon, there he was at the table by the window, easing his back into the sun, looking for a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll." ~ from "Life After Death"

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
