Remembering Phil Hansotia

June 26, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

Write On, Door County is hosting a walk and reading along the Poetry Trail in remembrance of the late Phil Hansotia. From the Write On, Door County website:

The current exhibit on the Newport State Park Poetry Trail honors Phil Hansotia, who passed away in June of 2020. Phil was instrumental in establishing the Poetry Trail in 2010. His poems are displayed on the trail, along with poems written in homage to him by Thomas Davis and Judy Roy. Join these poets, as well as members of Phil’s poetry critique group, The Wallace Group, and others to celebrate Phil’s poetry and life.

The reading is free and open to all ages. A State Park Pass is required. The reading will progress from stanchion to stanchion along the trail; sturdy walking shoes and appropriate dress for an outdoor reading are encouraged. In the event of inclement weather, the reading will be held in the shelter off Parking Lot #3, limited transportation from the parking lot to the shelter will be provided for those who need assistance.

The Poetry Trail is accessible from Lot 1 at the Visitors Center. The ¾-mile trail is level, but there are rocks and roots that walkers need to be mindful of.
