A partnership with Write On, Door County has created an opportunity for Southern Door School District students to interact with a published author this week. Poet and fiction writer Naomi Shibab Nye will visit Southern Door School District along with other stops during her two-day visit to the county as a part of the Writings on the Door Poetry Conference March 23 through 25. Superintendent Patti Vickman says it is a tremendous opportunity for students to learn about a creative path.
This marks the second year in a row Write On, Door County and Southern Door School District have partnered together to bring an author to meet students, which led to Cameron Rass joining the non-profit group as its first student on the board of directors. Nye will also host a public reading at the Door Community Auditorium on Thursday beginning at 7 p.m.
