Sharon AuberleOn August 10 at 7 pm Sharon Auberle is the featured reader at the UUFDC’s Dickinson Poetry Series.

Auberle grew up in the Midwest, exploring fields, woods and waters, often in the company of her grandfather, who passed his love of the outdoors to her.  With this heritage, her years of living in the Southwest, and now in Door County, she finds much to draw on in her writing and photography.

Besides poetry, photography, collage and paper arts are her passion, samples of which may be found on her website — Mimi’s Golightly Café, which she has kept for the last ten years.  Her poems and photos have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies, both print and on-line, and she is pleased to have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

Auberle is the author of three books–Saturday Nights at the Crystal Ball, Crow Ink, and EVErywoman; and a poetry collection co-authored with Ralph Murre; as well as collaborations with poets Jeanie Tomasko and Alice D’Alessio, which feature her photography.

“Writing memoir helps me to write poetry,” she says, “and my poems distill the uncountable events of my days down to their essence –the aha moments, the joys and sorrows of my life, those things I wish never to forget.”
