March 16, 2023
Montana's 2021-2023 Poet Laureate Mark Gibbons spoke and read from, "In The Weeds," his latest anthology of poems, Saturday, February 25 at Alpine Artisans Open Book Club. The Poet Laureate is an honorary post that comes with responsibilities to promote the appreciation of poetry as an ancient and ongoing form of expression, said the Montana Arts Council, sponsor of the Poet Laureate program.
"I say everyone is a poet," said Gibbons. "What's a poet? Someone who writes down the things that come to mind. Basically poetry is just being a human being."
