Dickinson Poetry Series features Lauren Bremer Dec. 13, 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County in north Ephraim.
Bremer has been an English teacher and coach at Gibraltar High School since 2005. She earned her B.E. in Secondary Education in 2003, her M.A. in English Literature in 2009, and is currently working toward her M.B.A. in Educational Leadership. Although keeping up with her two children and grading essays take up the majority of her time, writing poetry is where her heart lies. Bremer finds inspiration equally in the solitude of a Baileys Harbor winter and the crash of a Chicago night. Her poetry touches on nature, politics, life in Door County, and the incredible tangle of human life around us. Each February, she coaches student poets to be featured at the UU Dickinson Poetry Series, and she is thrilled to share her own work with Dickinson Poetry Series.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a local or regional poet followed by an open mic. A reception follows affording an opportunity to meet the poet. The series is named for Emily Dickinson, a prolific poet and philosophically in tune with Unitarian beliefs. The public is welcome and there is no charge. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy 42. For more information call 920.854.7559.
