It’s been a challenging term for outgoing Kansas poet laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, who lost her home in 2011, metaphorically speaking.  That was when Governor Sam Brownback dissolved the Kansas Arts Commission, which housed the program.

It's not often a state poet laureate turns her pen to write a non-fiction tale, but Kansas Poet Laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg has done just that.
