Poets Laureate Night

September 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We welcome four poets laureate for readings of their work and an engaging discussion about poetry and writing!
Joining us will be Nicholas Gulig, the new 2023-24 Wisconsin Poet Laureate; Lisa Vihos, laureate for the City of Sheboygan; outgoing Wausau Poet Laureate Dawn Anderson; and Wausau’s new 2023-2024 Poet Laureate, Tiffany Rodriguez-Lee! Each poet will share some of their work along with a moderated discussion about a laureate’s life, poetry and (probably) more!
Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7230 for more information.
