Today Dylan Days starts in earnest in Bob Dylan’s hometown of Hibbing, Minnesota.
Duluth poet laureate Sheila Packa will lead a poetry workshop from 1-3 p.m. at the Hibbing Memorial Building dining hall.
At 3, M.L. Liebler and the Coyote Monk Band Great Northern Radio Show alumnus and Hibbing’s own Iris Kolodji will provide entertainment on the Memorial Building Little Theater stage, where at 3:30 authors and poets will read winnings works from the B.J. Rolfzen Memorial Dylan Days Creative Writing Contest.
