Poetry Night in Sisseton

An appreciative audience gathered Oct. 12 at the Thollehaug Commons on a rainy night to hear poems read by South Dakota’s new Poet Laureate, Bruce Roseland, and South Dakota State Poetry Society member John Nelson. Five local poets, including one high school student, shared their original poems in the open-mic session. Sisseton is one of 15 communities across the state to host Poetry on the Road, a program of the South Dakota State Poetry Society and the South Dakota Humanities Council. The program was arranged locally by the Sisseton Arts Council. ~ Courtesy Photo
