In this panel, moderated by poet Jericho Brown, we’ll hear from Jennifer Horne, poet laureate of Alabama; Jack Bedell, poet laureate of Louisiana; and Beth Ann Fennelly, poet laureate of Mississippi. The poets will read from their work, talk about the special inspiration of place, and illuminate the responsibilities and rewards of being a state poet laureate.
