A New Poet Laureate

On June 14, 2017, the Librarian of Congress appointed Tracy K. Smith as the new Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry.

In 2012, Smith won the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for Life on Mars.

The Library of Congress has this to say about Smith's writings:

"Her work travels the world and takes on its voices; brings history and memory to life; calls on the power of literature as well as science, religion and pop culture. With directness and deftness, she contends with the heavens or plumbs our inner depths-all to better understand what makes us most human." (source)
