Poetry Friday: Kay Ryan

The big news in poetry is that Californian Kay Ryan was named the next U.S. poet laureate. See this article at the San Francisco Chronicle for details; Ryan's poem "Home to Roost" is included. (A poet laureate who knows her chickens. Yeah!) Among the bloggers talking about Ryan are the folks at Finding Wonderland, Seven Impossible Things, The Book Bench, and Paper Cuts, and today's Poetry Friday host, Kelly Fineman.

The Christian Science Monitor profiled Ryan in 2004, not long after she won the Ruth Lilly prize. (Thanks to The Book Bench for the CSM link.)
