Congratulations to former Council for Wisconsin Writers board member and reigning Wisconsin Poet Laureate Karla Huston on this wonderful and well-deserved honor:
“Appleton’s City Council will be proclaiming Karla Huston Day at its meeting on Wednesday, June 7, 7:00 pm, City Hall, 100 N. Appleton Street, for Karla’s selection as WI Poet Laureate and for her ongoing work to bring poetry to the city’s residents.”
This news comes from Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets’ Cathryn Cofell, who says that Karla will also be reading Wednesday, June 14 in Ephraim. Here are the details:
Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 7 p.m., open mic to follow
UUF, 10341 Highway 42, Ephraim
The public is welcome, and admission is free.
With Karla’s recent resignation from the CWW board of directors so she can attend to her Poet Laureate duties, the board needs to find a replacement and to fill a couple of other positions. For more information, please contact CWW president Geoff Gilpin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
