Write On, Door County presents United States Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith in a public reading on Oct. 11 at the Southern Door Community Auditorium (SDCA) in Brussels. A goodwill donation by attendees is requested, but regardless, no one will be turned away from the door.
A bus has been chartered by Write On to bring residents of northern Door County to and from the SDCA. “We realize that there are many people who would like to attend the event but are not able to make the drive for a variety of reasons,” said Write On Executive Director Jerod Santek. “We hope that by providing transportation many people, including students and seniors, will be able to take part in this unique opportunity to hear one of our country’s finest poets.”
The schedule for pick-ups are: 4:30-4:45 pm, Scandia Village, 10560 Applewood Drive, Sister Bay; 5-5:15 pm, Baileys Harbor Public Parking Lot, 2404 Park Road; 5:30-5:45 pm, Donald & Carol Kress Pavilion, 7845 Church St., Egg Harbor.
The bus will begin its return trip at approximately 8:30 pm. Bus passengers will receive priority in the book signing line so that they can be on board in a timely manner.
Seating is limited to 56 people. Though free, reservations are required. People may register for the bus at writeondoorcounty.org or by calling 920.868.1457.
In addition to her public reading, Smith will conduct a program for area high school students at Sevastopol School. For more information visit writeondoorcounty.org.
