About 35 years ago, Karen Herseth Wee and Riki Kölbl Nelson met through their husbands — both St. Olaf College English professors — and soon gathered local women into the Northfield Women Poets. Today, that renamed group, Penchant Poets, is still going strong, with weekly meetings during the academic year and several anthologies to its name. 3-Minute Egg found some of the women in the collective reading from their fourth and latest anthology, Penchant, as part of the monthly Converse in Verse series at Nina’s Coffee Cafe in St. Paul.
