Poetry, art, and Michigan. All have inspired local writer and artist Jeanne Van Wieren. The Williamston Enterprise columnist has published a book of her art and poetry called “This Mitten Is Tightly Knit”.

Van Wieren says she started writing poetry in her journal at least 20 years ago, especially poems with a Christmas theme she would include in her seasonal greeting cards.

A friend's nudging prompted her to combine her talents for painting and poetry into a book.
