In the Media: Lynne Thompson ’72 Discusses Her Poet Laureate Role with Interlitq

Lynne Thompson ’72, chair of the Board of Trustees, discussed her role and planned legacy as Los Angeles’ newest poet laureate with Interlitq. In addition to creating a poetry podcast for the Los Angeles Public Library and compiling a collection of poems written by students, Thompson is “starting to explore the possibility of reading to and writing about members of LA’s senior population, in the belief that if we fail to take down these stories, they’ll be irretrievably lost to our culture’s detriment.”
