Meet Poet/Illustrator/Farmer at Novel Bay June 4

Joseph M. Lopez has joined the thriving Door County poetry community, and along with poetry, he draws illustrations to accompany his poems and is farming sustainably north of Sturgeon Bay.

The beauty and spirit of Door County have inspired the poetry in Lopez’s two books, Sounds Unheard Songs of Home and The Lethargy of Fog, and he seeks to honor the county and its people through them.

“I write to acknowledge the fact that we are witness to wonder and magic – that we are lucky to live here,” Lopez said.

He will sign books June 4, 10 am – 12 pm, at Novel Bay Booksellers, 44 N. 3rd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay.
