Two Saint Louis Youth Poets Laureate will be featured on St. Louis On the Air, a daily live broadcast on St. Louis Public Radio at noon on Monday, January 25, 2021. Last year’s St. Louis Youth Poet Laureate, Sarah Abbas, and the current laureate, Grace Ruo, will discuss how their poems speak to the issues of the day.
The recent inaugural poem by 2017 National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman sparked interest locally in the works of youth poets. Monday’s broadcast will give listeners an opportunity to hear from poets with a national reach and a local connection.
