New Children's Poet Laureate

The 2nd Children's Poet Laureate has just been announced by The Poetry Foundation! The recipient is the wonderful Mary Ann Hoberman, author of 45 books, all but one of which are in verse. The Newport Public Library has a number of her books, including My Song is Beautiful: Poems and Pictures in Many Voices, You Read to Me, I'll Read to You and Whose Garden Is It? Come in, check out one of her books today and make poetry an important part of your life!

Ms. Hoberman also has a very interesting website with a biography, news and poetry that I encourage you to visit!
