Me & U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith

The Poet Laureate of the United States and author of the book “Life on Mars” visited Southeastern Louisiana University on March 26 as part of the university’s Common Read program.

I had the honor of interviewing her for a craft talk. She was very generous with her advice and just a joy to be around. Her visit included a talk and Q/A with high school students for various parishes in Louisiana, a craft talk with me and an evening reading for the public.

Her most recent book is Wade in the Water.
