Mary Bergin Headshot

Mary Bergin has traveled the world but is most likely to pay attention to her home turf, the often-overlooked Midwest U.S. The lifelong journalist lives in Madison, Wis. and her awards include four Lowell Thomas honors for articles about Germany, an eco-retreat in Missouri, an acclaimed barbecue cook in an impoverished corner of Arkansas and the charms of unincorporated Johnsonville, Wis., home to the heavyweight sausage-making company. Small-Town Wisconsin: Fun, Surprising and Exceptional Road Trips, released by Globe Pequot in 2023, is her sixth book.
