Each month, Content Bookstore in downtown Northfield is host to a poetry reading featuring a local or regional poet and including an open mic where members of the audience can share their own original poetry. The series kicked off in October with a joint reading by Rob Hardy and Brenda Hellen, and continues on Thursday, November 12, at 7 pm, with a reading by Diane LeBlanc.
Diane LeBlanc is a writer, teacher, and book artist. She is the author of three poetry chapbooks: Sudden Geography (2014), Dancer with Good Sow (2008), and Hope in Zone Four (1998). In addition to poetry and essays in Bellingham Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, The Journal, Natural Bridge, and other journals, her essay “Work in Progress” appears in Claiming Our Callings: Toward a New Understanding of Vocation in the Liberal Arts (2014). Diane directs the writing program and teaches at St. Olaf College.

Northfield’s two venerable funeral homes – Benson & Langehough Funeral Home & Cremation and Bierman Funeral Home – have announced they are joining forces effective immediately. Between the two mortuaries, they will continue to provide comprehensive funeral and cremation services in Northfield and the surrounding region.
The two businesses will remain in their current spaces, Benson & Langehough at 201 East 4th Street and Bierman Funeral Home at 1316 Division Street South. The directors, Andy Langehough and Jim Bierman, will each continue to manage their respective facilities. Their collaboration will be most evident during on-call hours when they will respond for one another on weekends and weekday evenings, allowing each to have time “off duty” without sacrificing their service to those in need.
