This summer marks the 32nd season for the Stone Circle.

Poet Terry Wooten is known for having created this space for poetry, storytelling and music on a family farm near Elk Rapids.

"There's something in our DNA that you cannot sit around a fire and not want to hear stories," said Wooten.

Now, he has released a collection of his poems called The Stone Circle Poems covering many decades of his writing and showcasing his ability to make poetry accessible to everyone.

"Poetry is intensified communication and when you put it in the setting of the stone circles and the fire in the middle you have an excellent recipe for communication," he said.

The Stone Circle gatherings begin this Saturday, June 27 at 9 p.m. For more information go here.
