Dave Lucas Named Ohio Poet Laureate

Dave Lucas has been named the new Ohio Poet Laureate. He follows Dr. Amit Majmadar, a radiologist in the Columbus area, who was the state’s first poet laureate. Lucas says, “I am grateful, humbled, and eager for the opportunity to serve as the Poet Laureate of the State of Ohio, and to celebrate poetry wherever we may find it—in books, on stage, and on screens; and in the metaphors that help us to understand our world and each other.”
