Auberle and Murre Headline December Dickinson Poetry Series

Ralph Murre and Sharon Auberle will present a collaborative reading of their poems for the Dickinson Poetry Series on Dec. 11 at 7 pm at the UU Fellowship.

Murre, who says he is a longtime Door County fixture and curmudgeon-in-training, is the author of four books of poetry. The latest, Wind Where Music Was, is a collaboration with Sharon Auberle. Murre’s poems have been published in journals too numerous to mention and readings of his work have been enjoyed by audiences around Wisconsin and in several states farther afield. In his spare time he runs a website to which poets can submit previously published poems so that good poems may appear in print a second time.

Auberle is an Ohio-born writer and photographer who lived 17 years in the Southwest before she found Door County. Her poems and photos have appeared in many publications, online magazines, and a number of anthologies. She has a Pushcart Prize nomination, but is most proud of being included in the anthology WomanPrayers, where her poem appears on the same page as a prayer from Mother Theresa.

On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a local or regional poet followed by an open mic and reception. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
