Laurie Hertzel with husband
I grew up in Duluth, Minnesota, where I fell into journalism after taking a job as a clerk at the Duluth News-Tribune. Now I live in St. Paul and work for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, where I am the books editor. My husband is also in the newspaper biz. We spend a lot of time Up North.
I've reported from Russia and Cuba. My work has appeared in literary and academic journals, the Chicago Tribune, the San Jose Mercury News, Minnesota Monthly magazine, and many other publications.
I've been a fellow at Duke University, a writer-in-residence at the James Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio, and a faculty member and speaker at the Nieman Conferences on Narrative Writing and Editing at Harvard and at Boston University. I've taught writing at Ohio State University and at conferences in Romania and all over the United States.
