On Wednesday, the North Central Louisiana Arts Council will bring current Louisiana Poet Laureate, Julie Kane, to Ruston High School for a reading. Kane will speak to English students, with a reading of her selected poetry followed by time for questions.

She has three poetry books published and is also the co-editor, with Grace Bauer, of “Umpteen Ways of Looking at a Possum: Critical and Creative Responses to Everette Maddox,” which was a finalist for the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance book prize in poetry; and the associate editor for “20th-century poetry of Voices of the American South, the Longman anthology of Southern literature” (2005). With Kiem Do, she co-authored the nonfiction Vietnam memoir “Counterpart: A South Vietnamese Naval Officer’s War,” which became a History Book Club Featured Alternate Selection.
