Poet and professor Diane Raptosh is quoted in a New York Times article about the state of poet laureates across the nation. The article “Is Poetry Dead? Not if 45 Official Laureates Are Any Indication,” was sparked by the resignation of North Carolina’s poet laureate Valerie Macon, who is a self-published writer with only two books to her credit. Her appointment was seen as an insult to the position, which the conservative Gov. Pat McCrory may seek to abolish.
Raptosh tells a great anecdote about giving a poetry reading on a moving school bus as if she were a theme park tour guide.
