Laufer, will highlight the origins her writings, which are influenced by locations stretching from a wayside in Door County, to the Apostle Islands, to a view from Fort Mackinac.  The selection also reflects a return to her love of poetry after a hiatus.  Laufer was featured in the “Peninsula Poetry” column in early April.
