If you ask Katy Hackworthy three phrases her pals associate with her, nine times out of ten they’d come up with something along the lines of: support local, create community, and read more books.

At the intersection of those three things is Dotter’s Books. In the past few years, Dotter’s has acted as a community hub for literary folks in the Chippewa Valley to read local books and connect.

Listen as Hackworthy contemplates how all folks can find their sense of community – whether that’s at a local coffee shop, a bookstore, or a shop downtown – even amid a pandemic. This is the fifth installment of “Visual/Voice,” which features some of the best writers in the region visually vocalizing their words that appear in our pages.
