|Shin Yu Pai|
According to the city, the purpose of our Poet Laureate is to:
1. Broaden the awareness of poetry.
2. Express the spirit of Redmond culture through poetry.3. Raise the level of discourse during discussions and debates in the City.
Have you ever heard her recite poetry? Please comment below this post. I've heard her once at a city hall council meeting. I sat towards the back of the chambers and had a difficult time hearing and understanding her. Frankly, I found her a bit over my head. Hopefully, we'll see more of Shin Yu Pai in a better setting as we get closer to the summer.
You can find a full description of Shin's background here. She has impressive credentials.
