Date: May 11, 2021, 10:30-11:30 am

Join us on the Public Good! We are lucky enough to have Buffalo's very own Poet Laureate Jillian Hanesworth. Jillian is Buffalo's first-ever Poet Laureate! We talk about what it was like for Jillian to help establish the position, the daily duties of a poet laureate, and what it's like to fill the role as a 28-year old Black woman. Jillian also discusses how she plans to make the position a major part of Buffalo's Culture and some of the struggles she endures in her historic role. Don't miss out on this one. We had a lot of fun!
