Richard Carter and Carolyn Kenney-Carter are the featured artists in the UU Fellowship’s Dickinson Poetry Series on August 14 at 7 pm.
Richard E. Carter, geographer, naturalist, aviator, essayist and poet, has a deep connection with earth’s forces and creatures. From a career in city planning, he has moved into the natural world, where he invites readers to share his vision and adventures in northern Wisconsin. He and his wife Carolyn received the Council for Wisconsin Writers Ellis/Henderson Outdoor Writing Award – 2011 for Through the Cabin Door, a book of essays and drawings.
Carolyn has provided pencil drawings and nature notes for two other joint ventures, including Inside and Out, a recent collection of her poetry. She worked as an artist for Milwaukee museums, completed a master’s degree in business and explored the field of graphic design before becoming a painter and visual collaborator with Richard. Her rich, poignant drawings flow in perfect harmony with her husband’s words. At the Dickinson series Carolyn will discuss the collaboration and Richard will read his poetry.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a reading by a local or regional poet followed by an open mic and reception. The public is welcome, and admission is free.
The UUF is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. For more information visit uufdc.org or call 920.854.7559.
