Event Description:
AMERICAN POET LAUREATES by Janice Moore, 3 Sessions, Wednesday, April 18 - May 2, 10:10 am - 12:10 pm
 
Being named poet laureate is the most public honor an American poet can receive. How does one get to be poet laureate, and what does a poet laureate do?  Two of the more recent, Billy Collins and Natasha Trethewey have read their poetry on the Young Harris College campus, and their poems will be included in this study, along with others such as Ted Kooser, Rita Dove, and Stanley Kunitz.  We will read representative poems of these authors, get to know their voices, and in the process learn more about poetry.
 
Janice Moore enjoyed a long teaching career in the English Department at Young Harris College, serving as Chair of the Humanities Division for eight years and teaching a variety of literature classes as well as creative writing.  For a dozen years she served as poetry editor for Georgia Journal.  Her own poetry has been published in many journals, anthologies, and in her chapbook Teaching the Robins.
Location:
ICL Classroom at Young Harris College.
