Dan Noyes holds up a copy of his book prior to hosting a discussion group. Noyes grew up on a farm one mile west of Ghent and graduated from Minneota in 1986. His parents, Ray and Colleen Noyes, adpopted Dan when he was a baby. Noyes is now a practicing architect in Minneapolis. ‘Ulme’, his self-published 41-page book, was written as a reflection on growing up an adopted child and the unique world view that comes from being from “somewhere” else. The book is written as though Gislason is narrating it. Minneota native Dana Yost was the editor of the book.

Noyes penned his short book called “Ulme’: The Sounds of the Shadows of her Hands” that includes reflections of Gislason and the late Bill Holm.
