Naomi Shihab Nye on the History of Fargo, North Dakota

On August 22, 2012, Naomi Shihab Nye took a walking tour of downtown Fargo, North Dakota. Inspired by an article in the Fargo Forum on Louise Erdrich, Naomi set out to locate two buildings connected with Erdrich’s time in Fargo during the 1970s. The first was the building where Erdrich lived, and the second is where Erdrich worked. Below are two short video clips of Naomi’s impressions, first of the location of Erdrich’s Fargo flat, this above Arctic Audio at 14 8th Street South…

…and the second on the north sidewalk of deLendrecies at 620 Main Avenue, what used to be the location of Erdrich’s office…

Buildings are stories on so many levels.

Thanks, Naomi, for advancing historic preservation…
