Every day for almost 45 years, Norbert Blei, Door County’s best-known writer, went to his chicken coop-turned writing studio near Europe Lake in Ellison Bay. There he penned his novels, short stories, essays and poems. Norb passed in 2013, but his spirit can be found in his books and wherever you connect to the county’s beauty.
Norb’s spirit can still be felt in his beloved Coop, too, as it was donated to Write On, Door County by his children with the understanding that it will productively live on. It now stands in a sunny meadow, providing a safe haven and inspiration to new generations of writers. Stop by for a tour! Call 920-868-1457.
