The Dickinson Poetry Series features Don Brunnquell on May 10 at 7 pm at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County.
Brunnquell first published a poem in his 1970 high school literary magazine. He has been writing ever since as he pursued his career in child psychology and bioethics. He believes poetry brings light to life’s experiences – it can help us see, understand, endure and celebrate.
Brunnquell graduated from Lawrence University, where he majored in psychology but took more courses in literature than psychology. He has been a frequent visitor to Door County since the 1970s and has offered a seminar at Björklunden on science and ethics. He was an early participant and later a board member at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis and worked with Audre Lorde, Howard Nemerov, Michael Ondaatje, and he participated in the 1981 Mentor Series. He has recent work in the Journal of Medical Humanities and the Red Bird Chapbook A Little Book of Abundance: poems for thanksgiving throughout the year.
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. A reception follows affording an opportunity to meet the poets. The public is welcome and there is no charge. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim.
