Paulette Laufer will take the Dickinson Poetry Series stage at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) on Aug. 10, 7 pm. Laufer – featured in the Peninsula Pulse’s Peninsula Poetry column in early April – will share some of the varied poems she’s written since moving to Door County in 2015 and highlight the geographical origins of several poems. The selection also reflects a return to her love of poetry after a hiatus.
Laufer began writing poetry as an undergraduate at UW-Stevens Point, but she was later involved in playwriting and theater work in the Washington, D.C., area for many years. She earned an honorable mention in the 2017 Wisconsin People & Ideas poetry contest, and recent work has appeared in regional publications and exhibits.
An open mic will follow Laufer’s reading, allowing others to read their poetry, along with a reception where attendees can meet Laufer.
