May 11, 2023: Texas Poet Laureate Celebration

Local poet and artist Lupe Mendez has been serving us as the Texas Poet Laureate over the last biennial and is about to end his service next month. Throughout his term, he has presented his own poetry, along with that of other poets from around the state of Texas. While others don’t do much with the ceremonial title, Lupe added some value to it, offering up the talents of various artists. He will have a final reading featuring various talents on May 11.

Congrats to Lupe. He will continue to serve us well, no doubt, but he has done well in what he set out to do as Texas Poet Laureate. Gracias, Lupe!
