Attend free, festive cultural events – and make time to rhyme at home with young children – to celebrate National Poetry Month.
Susan Auberle, the 2017-19 Door County poet laureate, will join with newly named Door County Poet Laureate Nancy Rafal to participate in the Home-Grown Poetry series, created by Door County Library and Write On, Door County. Both poets will read from their work, and, along with members of the community, they will discuss the importance of poetry in our lives. Readings will take place at the libraries in Baileys Harbor on April 19, 11 am; Fish Creek on April 22, 1 pm; Sturgeon Bay on April 23, 6 pm; and Forestville on April 29, 5:30 pm.
“I like things to work organically when I write,” Rafal said, “and I’m looking forward to starting a formal history of the Door County poet laureate position as I start my tenure.”
