MANITOWOC, Wis. — Dr. Emilie Lindemann, associate professor of English at Silver Lake College, will be among more than 70 presenters at Untitled Town, a book and author festival running April 28-30 in Green Bay.

Dr. Lindemann will host “Food Poems: a Writing Workshop,” which will give participants a chance to use food imagery as inspiration for poems that explore the human experience. Her presentation, at 11 a.m. on April 30 at the Brown County Central Library, 515 Pine St., Green Bay, is geared to writers and those who would like to dabble in poetry. The presentation is free and open to the public.

“This festival will be the first occasion in recent Green Bay history in which thousands of people interested in book culture have been purposefully gathered,” said Alex Galt, a member of the festival board of directors and co-owner of Kavarna Coffeehouse, one of the festival venues. “Individuals who may have felt that they lived and worked in isolation will have the opportunity to find one another for the first time.”

Sherman Alexie and Margaret Atwood will be the headlining authors. The event will include readings, discussions, panels, workshops and other events of interest to writers and readers, including a book expo. Photo by LilyRian Photography
