The Wisconsin Poet Laureate is calling Door County home this week as she gets away to do a little writing of her own. Karla Huston of Appleton led a poetry workshop at the Sister Bay Library earlier this week during her residency at Write On, Door County’s headquarters in Juddville. The Wisconsin Poet Laureate is selected for a two-year term to be the voice of poetry in the state. One of the projects Huston is most proud of is her work with memory cafes, which helps keep Alzheimer’s patients in tune through poetry.
Though her residency ends Sunday, she is already looking forward to coming back when National Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith visits Door County for an event October 11.
