Door County Poet Laureate Headlines May Dickinson Poetry Series
Ralph Murre is the featured reader for the Dickinson Poetry Series on May 11 at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in north Ephraim. A former farm boy, his vocations and avocations have included architecture, boatbuilding, sailing and wandering the backroads of North America on two wheels and four.
Murre is the author of several collections of poetry, including Crude Red Boat, The Price of Gravity, and Wind Where Music Was, a collaboration with Sharon Auberle. His work has been published here and there around the U.S. and beyond and in at least one case, in Chinese translation. He is the 2015-17 Poet Laureate of Door County. Murre is also the founder and editor of Little Eagle Press.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a renowned local or regional poet followed by an open mic and reception. The public is welcome and there is no charge.
