Poet shares views on getting to Door County from anywhere

Sturgeon Bay poet Mike Orlock says there are no accidental tourists in Door County and he's written a new book around that theme.  Orlock is a retired teacher, newspaper movie critic and poet who now makes his home in Sturgeon Bay.  “You Can Get Here From There” is a collection of poems that summarize Orlock's feelings and experiences about the Door Peninsula which readers cannot discover by accident.


Orlock uses “You Can Get Here From There” to show readers his transformation from a world of subdivisions, shopping centers and multiplexes to a closer relationship with the elements.



Orlock has also shared his love of poetry through the Dickinson Poetry Series at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County.
