Kim Blaeser, the current Poet Laureate of Wisconsin, is the featured poet in the UU Fellowship’s Dickinson Poetry Series on Oct. 14 at 7 pm.
Blaeser is a Professor of Creative Writing and American Indian Literature at University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. She has published three poetry collections and her poems have been translated into several languages. Her poems often reflect her Anishinaabe heritage and her high regard for the natural world. Her most recent work is based on native pictographs.
Blaeser’s poems are often accessible and profound as well as thoughtful and humorous. This past June, she gave a lively reading at the 65th Anniversary Conference of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets. Based on that experience, this reading at UUFDC should not be missed. Blaeser will bring books to sell and sign.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a renowned local or regional poet followed by an open mic, providing an opportunity for others to read their poetry. Admission is free and a reception follows the readings. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
