U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith will visit Southern Door School District Thursday as a part of its partnership with Write On, Door County. For the last three years, the district has hosted poets and authors to work with the freshman class on their writing skills. Smith was appointed as the 22nd U.S. Poet Laureate in 2017. Southern Door Superintendent Patti Vickman says it is a great opportunity for students to work with an accomplished writer like Smith.
In addition to working with students at Sevastopol earlier in the day, Smith will host a free reading and discussion at the Southern Door Auditorium Thursday night beginning at 7:00.
