As of April 1, San Antonio has its second poet laureate in Laurie Ann Guerrero.
"I’m the new poet laureate of San Antonio, and I’m working on a new book,” she said.
Guerrero is just getting used to the new title and the work that it entails, and she has plans for how she wants to go about doing it. Priority one:
“Getting poetry into the hands of our youth" she said. "And what I want to do is use different avenues to do that -- media, events. I kind of want to bombard the city with poems. Inspiration. Comfort.”
