Redell Headlines October Dickinson Poetry Series

John Patrick Redell

John Patrick Redell will be the featured poet in the UU Fellowship’s Dickinson Poetry Series on Oct. 9 at 7 pm.

Although his path is one of constant learning, Redell knows that life is filled with false trails and dead ends. One correct turn led him to Door County, along with a partner and his first dog. He calls both Egg Harbor and Sister Bay home.

Redell’s poetry reflects both the successful and disappointing observations in his life. A retired construction worker, who has surveyed and engineered, he knows the cost of a mistake. The dirt that accumulated under his fingernails earned him the financial means to get to Door County and enjoy friendships with some great poets and writers as well as some great mentoring.

On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a reading by a local or regional poet followed by an open mic and reception. The public is welcome, and admission is free.

The UUF is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. For more information visit or call 920.854.7559.
