Artscape: RI's Poet Laureate Wants To Weave Poetry Into Daily Life

Nov 30, 2017

November marks the one-year anniversary for Rhode Island's poet laureate, Tina Cane. 

Cane is a teacher as well as a published poet, and for this month’s Artscape, she joined RIPR’s Chuck Hinman to talk about poetry, and her mission to inject more of it into ordinary life. She’s already placed poetry on the public bus system statewide.    


Cane is originally from New York City. She begins the interview by explaining how she and her husband wound up in Providence.
