Writer Laureate

I had not heard the term of Writer Laureate before, but now OSU has its own writer laureate in Kathy Dean Moore, whose wonderful collection of essays, Riverwalking, has been so well received. I really enjoyed the way she interacts with nature, a bit like the wonderful poet Mary Oliver, though in prose. I met Kathy once when the Spring Creek Project was hosting Linda Lear, biographer of Rachel Carson and Beatrix Potter, when Lear spoke at OSU in 2003.
