Barbara Larsen, recently appointed Door County Poet Laureate by the County Board, is charged with serving as Door County’s “literary ambassador.” Her initial appearance in this role will take place on September 28 from 1 to 2:30 pm at the Red Cup Café on Washington Island. Her performance is entitled The Poet’s Bag of Tricks.
Accompanied by Sharon Auberle, also a Door County poet, Larsen will show what makes a poem a poem while reading from her own works as well as using examples from well-known writers. Auberle will contribute her own poetic insights. Questions and feedback from the audience will be welcome.
All islanders and visitors are invited to attend.
