Southern Reading List: Karen Head

Nov 18, 2019

Karen Head is executive director of the communication center at Georgia Institute of Technology. She's also the Waffle House Poet Laureate. The designation came after a Waffle House fouondation-funded poetry tour project for under-served Georgia high school students.

Head's newest collection of poem is called Lost on Purpose. She stopped by On Second Thought to share her recommendations for the "Southern Reading List." For the series, we invite authors and readers to talk about books that define and reflect the South. 


Head recommended William Wright's The Southern Poet Anthology, Volume V: Georgia and Collin Kelley's Render.
