Digging to the Roots Calendar Winner, Larry Gavin

Larry Gavin, Faribault Minnesota

Larry Gavin’s three books of poetry Necessities, Least Resistance, and Stone & Sky are all from Red Dragonfly Press at the Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota.  In addition to poetry, Mr. Gavin worked for fifteen years as senior editor for Midwest Fly Fishing Magazine, where he wrote over eighty articles on the environment, fly fishing, and issues facing the Midwest’s cold-water streams.  He currently writes weekly for Minnesota Outdoor News, and coordinates writing panels for The Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo in Chicago and Minneapolis each year.

He edits a haiku magazine published on three-by-five postcards called Tumbling Crane.  It is produced at irregular intervals and is devoted to the haiku in English.  Mr. Gavin lives in Faribault with Patty, his son, Fergus, an English springer spaniel named LC, and a small pack of beagles.  He is an avid reader, a relentless mountain biker, and a fine hand with scent hounds.
