Louisiana poet laureate’s 1st reading online Wednesday
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities is inviting people to join the new state poet laureate’s first public reading through two online venues.
Saloy grew up in New Orleans and has taught since 1991 at Dillard University, a historically Black private university in the city.
Truman State University Press published two collections of her work: “Red Beans and Ricely Yours” and “Second Line Home.”
Louisiana’s poet laureate is a literary ambassador, traveling around the state for two years to encourage people to explore and engage with poetry. Saloy’s term began in August.
