Location Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
Introduction Trilby Busch was born and raised in the Steel Valley of Homestead, Pennsylvania. Her paternal great-grandfather was killed in the Homestead Works in the immediate aftermath of the battle between company-hired Pinkertons and locked-out steelworkers--an event that inspired her to write "Darkness Visible: A Novel of the 1892 Homestead Strike". She served on the Board of Contributors to the Opinion Page of the Minneapolis Star, writing about historic preservation and folklore, and has published over 150 feature and op-ed pieces. A longtime resident of Minneapolis, she is retired from teaching college composition and literature. She is writer/editor for the Healy Project, dedicated to researching and preserving the architectural legacy of Minneapolis master builder Theron Potter Healy.
