Holly HardenAt age 9, in the back seat of her grandmother's car on the way to a funeral, Holly Harden began to write, and she's been writing ever since.  She grew up in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, majored in English at St. Olaf College, and taught secondary English for nine years.  In 2002, she earned an MFA in Writing from Hamline University.  Holly’s nonfiction has appeared in Utne and Fourth Genre, and she edited Garrison Keillor’s Good Poems and Life Among the Lutherans.  Her book, Good Food from Mrs. Sundberg’s Kitchen, was published by Adventure Publications in 2014, and Recipes for Gatherings from Mrs. Sundberg’s Kitchen (2015) is her second cookbook.  Holly lives in Minnesota, where she writes for A Prairie Home Companion, leads The Forest Lake Writer’s Workshop, and helps her three children get where they’re going.
