April is National Poetry Month, a time to encourage support for poets, poetry, and celebrate poetry’s special place in our lives and culture. Pulitzer Prize winning poet,
Tracy K. Smith, was recently
reappointed for a second term as U.S. Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry. I invite you to be an original cosponsor of a House Resolution honoring her selection by the Librarian of Congress as the 22nd Poet
Laureate of the United States, and for her great accomplishments as a writer, educator, and public servant.
