Karla Huston, Wisconsin’s 2017-18 Poet Laureate, will present some of her work on Thurs., Apr. 5th, at 5 p.m. in Laurentide in the 3rd-floor “living room area.” It’s a celebration of Poetry Month! There will be some refreshments (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org encouraged but not required) and a display of poems of place and identity by UWW international students and Washington Elementary School fourth graders, and some of the international students will read their work also.
