Minnesota's Poet Laureate Coming to Royalton

Minnesota's Poet Laureate Coming to Royalton

Joyce Sutphen, Minnesota's current poet laureate, will share some of her poetry at a reading at the Royalton Public Library on Wednesday, May 9 beginning at 7:00 p.m. All members of the public are invited to attend. Governor Mark Dayton named Sutphen as Minnesota's poet laureate in August 2011.  Her works focus on her childhood on a family farm near St. Joseph, as well as romance and other images. This event will be sponsored by the Minnesota Cultural and Heritage Legacy Fund.
