Louisiana's Newest Poet Laureate Comes to New Orleans

Late last year, a panel of poets and scholars nominated three accomplished poets to be Louisiana’s next Poet Laureate -- the state’s literary ambassador. From that list, the governor recently appointed Julie Kane, a tireless promoter of poetry in the state. Kane is a recipient of the National Poetry Series award, the Donald Justice Poetry Prize, and a Fulbright Scholarship.  In 2005, she was selected as a juror for the National Book Award in Poetry.
