Recent Event

I was delighted to introduce the 24th United States Poet Laureate, Ada Limón, as the featured speaker at the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment at the Holland Center in Omaha, NE.

Over 700 people attended this wonderful reading and a question and answer session with Nebraska State Poet, Matt Mason and Amelia Escalante, the Nebraska Poetry Out Loud Champion. Ada was my advisor in my MFA program at Queens University in Charlotte, NC so it was a joy to reconnect.
