BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - A new book tied to South Dakota’s 125th anniversary year focuses on creativity.

The Brookings Arts Council released the piece entitled “First We Imagine: 22 Creative South Dakotans Speak on the Subject of Creativity.”

It’s comprised of interviews of people from arts, academia, journalism, business and government done by John Miller, secretary of the art council and a former South Dakota State University history professor. Among them: doctor and TV personality Rick Holm, research scientist Bonny Specker, businessman Tom Dempster, architect Craig Howe and writer Kent Myers.

The interviews show how Bernie Hunhoff started “South Dakota Magazine”; Kathleen Norris came to write “Dakota: A Spiritual Geography”; and Duane Sander and Al Kurtenbach started Daktronics.

The paperback is $15 and available in bookstores and on the Brookings Arts Council website.
