Great Regulars: Paulann Petersen has a poetry post

in front of her house in Sellwood. No surprise that Oregon's poet laureate makes poetry available for everyone who wants to read it, and no surprise that she has stories of truck drivers pulling over and grabbing a poem and moms with little kids lifting the lid and taking a poem to the playground. Petersen is all about bringing poetry to the people, and the poetry post is the tent pole that anchors her life and allows her to take poetry to every corner of Oregon and bring it home.
