Lynne Thompson ’72, the current poet laureate of Los Angeles, celebrated the city’s diverse and talented poets by co-hosting a “Day of Poetry” reading at Central Library, KCET reports. The event featured poets from across the county, along with co-host Grant Hier, the poet laureate of Anaheim, California. “Poet Laureates are ambassadors with a mission to promote poetry,” writes poet Mike Sonksen, who covered the event, “and both Thompson and Hier demonstrated this with the way the reading unfolded.”
