Video of US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey

Natasha was my first poetry mentor, and she remains a profound influence both as a poet and as a friend. Even if you're not a big poetry fan, I think you'll enjoy her poems. They are clear, wise, and deeply felt. Do yourself a favor, and check out her books on Amazon.

This is just a short post to share a recent video of her speaking about her love of poetry, and the power of words. Watch, and get to know this beautiful writer!
