United States Poet Laureate Visits Gwinnett

Pulitzer prize winning author Natasha Trethewey spoke Sunday, Oct. 7, at Georgia Gwinnett College. Named United States poet laureate back in June, Trethewey’s duties began in September.

Her most recent work, "Thrall', is a powerful juxtaposition of historical analysis and introspection. See Snellville Patch for more on this story.
