AP INTERVIEW: TRETHEWEY A ‘CHEERLEADER’ FOR POETRY

“Natasha Trethewey smashes stereotypes about poets. She’s not stuffy. Or shy. Or aloof. As U.S. poet laureate, the 46-year-old describes herself as a “cheerleader” for the written word. She chooses the label deliberately, not only because she was head cheerleader at the University of Georgia in the late 1980s (Big hair! Big smile!), but also because, as a younger laureate, she wants to bring a sense of energy to the position.”
