Ralph Murre and Sharon Auberle will present a collaborative reading of their poems for the Dickinson Poetry Series on Wednesday, December 11, at 7 pm at the UU Fellowship.
Ralph Murre, who says he is a longtime Door County fixture and curmudgeon-in-training, is the author of four books of poetry. The latest, Wind Where Music Was, is a collaboration with Sharon Auberle. Ralph’s poems have been published in journals too numerous to mention and readings of his work have been enjoyed by audiences around Wisconsin and in several states farther afield. In his spare time he runs a web site to which poets can submit previously published poems so that good poems may appear in print a second time.
Sharon Auberle is an Ohio-born writer and photographer who lived 17 years in the Southwest before she found Door County. Her poems and photos have appeared in many publications and on-line magazines, and in a number of anthologies. She is the author of a memoir in poetry and two collections containing both her poems and artwork. Her most recent accomplishment is a collaboration with poet Ralph Murre. She has a Pushcart Prize nomination, but is most proud of Woman Prayers, a collection in which her poem appears on the same page as Mother Theresa. Sharon has had a blog, Mimi’s Golightly Café, for seven years, which contains a potpourri of her images and words.
