Meet Indiana's new poet laureate

June 27, 2008
I know the suspense was killing you, so here's some relief.

As of last week, Indiana has a new poet laureate. He's Norbert Krapf, a St. Joseph's College grad with an M.A. from Notre Dame. His name is on 21 books as either author or editor, most recently "Bloodroot: Indiana Poems" (IU Press) and "The Ripest Moments: A Southern Indiana Childhood "(Indiana Historical Society Press).

He's also on disc: Krapf teamed with pianist Monika Herzig on CD "Imagine – Indiana in Music and Words."

You can read his poem "Ghost Road" here and "Arriving on Paumanok" here.

My only question: Why is the selection panel only made up of academics?
