Welcome What a year it has been! From celebrating history’s great female poets (Mona, Maya, Marianne and Sara) to awarding the Tradition of Literary Excellence Award to our city’s own Poet Laureate, Michael Castro. Once again, Congratulations to Michael! As we wrap up 2017 (with a bow!), we need to hear from you.
