With more than 30 years of experience in banking and finance, Tom Toerpe brings an uncommon perspective to the craft of poetry. He will share that perspective Sept. 13 at the Dickinson Poetry Series at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County. Toerpe’s poems have explored – among other things – the value of obsolete objects, the human purposes behind utility wires, and the philosophy of ice fishing.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a renowned local or regional poet followed by an open mic, providing an opportunity for others to read their poetry. A reception follows affording an opportunity to meet the poets. 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 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
