The Big Story on Northfield ArtsTown

I know, I know, I go without blogging for weeks, and now here I am with a second post this week. It’s a feast or famine thing. This post will be brief, though. I wanted to be very non-Minnesotan and pass along a link to a story about me that was published today on the Northfield ArtsTown website.

I am used to being the interviewer, so it was fun to have the tables turned and have my cool and talented neighbor Amy Smith ask me questions about my book in progress, my Minnesota Parent column, and other writing-related topics. The interview is the latest installment in the site’s “The Big Story” series on members of Northfield’s artist community.

You can read it here: The Big Story: Joy Riggs.

I’m honored to be included in such creative company; previous “Big Story” interviews have featured Charlie Black, a longtime actor on the Northfield Arts Guild stage; musician and all-around good guy Doug Bratland of Matt Arthur and the Bratlanders; and hot rod artist Nick Sinclair.

If you are not familiar with Northfield ArtsTown, be sure to check it out. Its mission is “to spread the word about all the amazing artists and art happenings in Northfield, Minnesota.” It includes an events calendar of local art happenings, artist portfolio pages, and information about arts-related venues and organizations.
