Local poets hold reading in Superior
Jan Chronister and Peggy Trojan will read their work at the Superior Public Library Thursday, July 28.
SUPERIOR — The Superior Public Library will host a poetry reading featuring award-winning local poets Jan Chronister and Peggy Trojan on Thursday, July 28 at 2 p.m.
The two have been close friends since meeting in a class Chronister taught in Iron River more than 12 years ago. Together they have authored 10 poetry books with more to come. Both were awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award for their poetry from the Wisconsin Library Association for Chronister’s “Distanced: Poems from the Pandemic” and Trojan’s “River.”
The poets write down-to-earth verse about the woods they live in and the lives they have led. Memories are often relived through the eyes of experience, joy and loss. The two women have found writing poetry to be a creative outlet, as well as a way to deal with life.
The reading is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.
