Author News: Lucille Clifton
Lucille Clifton, former poet laureate of Maryland and a National Book Winner, died Saturday in Baltimore after a battle with cancer. I had the pleasure of promoting her visit to Meredith College, my alma mater, as an intern in the Marketing and Communications office. Her visit created a lot of anticipation on campus in the spring of 2000, and she did not disappoint. She was a great speaker and read some of her poetry aloud.
