Crystal Wilkinson, Kentucky Poet Laureate"Everyone asks me, especially when I'm traveling around the country...'What is it? feel like you all have something special there in Kentucky. Why is it that this idea of a Kentucky writer is such a special thing?' And I think it's special because we're always reaching out for the next wave of writers. That's been part of the tradition."

Learn more about the woman who will be Kentucky's literary ambassador for the next two years, Crystal Wilkinson. She will be inducted as Kentucky Poet Laureate April 23 as we celebrate Kentucky Writers' Day.
