Kildegaard is a Minnesota poet and director of the Honors Program at the University of Minnesota-Morris. With funding from the Minnesota State Arts Board, she spent many hours researching and reading about women whose lives were lived on the Minnesota prairie. Then she wrote a book called Prairie Midden, which is a series of imaginings about these women from the past, present and future. Hear more about the project and excerpts from her book at the presentation.
