Tracy K. Smith Named Poet Laureate

The Library of Congress named Tracy K. Smith as its 22nd Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry on June 14, 2017. Smith’s collection Life on Mars (Graywolf) contains science fiction and speculative themes and won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.

As part of their responsibilities, “the Laureate gives a reading to open the Library’s annual literary series and a lecture to conclude the series, the oldest in the Washington area and among the oldest in the United States.”
