No foolin’…. April is National Poetry Month and we’re headlining our celebration with a delightful presentation featuring American poet Billy Collins, who reads a selection of humorous poems and discusses the craft of writing with host Dean Nelson and an appreciate audience at the keynote event of the 2013 Writer’s Symposium by the Sea.
We just read the news that Pultizer Prize-winning author Natasha Trethewey is slated to be the next poet laureate of the United States, an amazing honor for someone who is only 46 years old. She’s also the first Southerner to hold the post.
Ms. Trethewey was a guest on UCTV’s “Lunch Poems” poetry reading series from UC Berkeley in 2010, which means you can watch and listen to her work right here, right now. Enjoy!
