And today Decatur’s brightest rock star is Natasha Trethewey – named 2012-13 U.S. Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry by the Library of Congress. Natasha is not new to rock star status as she received a Pulitzer in 2007 for her work “Native Guard.”
Decatur is thrilled to celebrate this achievement with a toast in the Community Bandstand from 5 – 6:30 p.m. today. Come join the community fun that is co-sponsored by the Decatur Downtown Development Authority and the AJC Decatur Book Festival and features refreshments provided by Eddie’s Attic.
Decatur is full of rock star writers and we congratulate Natasha on her newest awesome achievement.
