LA Poet Laureate Reveals Bicentennial Poems
This past Saturday the bicentennial continued with the revealing of a special commissioned series of poems by our Louisiana Poet Laureate, Julie Kane. The reading was sponsored by the Imperial Calcasieu Museum and was part of the area's series of events and programs inspired by the state's year-long bicentennial celebration which is coordinated in conjunction with the Lake Charles/SWLA Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Museum, and the Arts Council. If you missed the reading, check out a great video of the bicentennial poems produced by Karen Wink of the American Press!
