Join us as we welcome Former NC Poet Laureate Kathryn Stripling Byer. Byer has set most of her poems in the mountains of North Carolina. Creating an identity that is both distinct and in line with the concerns of southern culture, Byer reclaims in her poetry the traditions, customs, and voices of past Appalachian women. In doing so, she defines herself as an artist and, at the same time, addresses the concerns of women in today's South.
