An Intimate Poetry Pairing

May 15, 2023 @ 5:30 am PDT

Presented by Santa Barbara Women’s Literary Voices and Santa Barbara Historical Museum

Join us in the historic Covarrubias Adobe Courtyard for happy hour and an opportunity to hear Santa Barbara’s 2023 Poet Laureate Melinda Palacio and 2022 Youth Poet Laureate Madeline Miller, as they share readings of their work and discuss their passion for poetry.

Melinda Palacio, the newly appointed Santa Barbara Poet Laureate, is an internationally-lauded poet, author, and speaker, is serving as Santa Barbara’s first Chicana Poet Laureate. She was nominated by several community members, and recommended to Council for appointment by the City Arts Advisory Committee. A long-time resident of Santa Barbara, Palacio noted, “Santa Barbara itself is a poem. Santa Barbara is the city that made me a poet.”

Madeline Miller, the 2022 Youth Poet Laureate was born in Mexico City, Mexico and raised in Santa Barbara, California by her father, a pastor, and mother, an educator, and like her parents, she has always valued language arts and education. She is the president of the San Marcos Writer’s Society and Vice President of the San Marcos Gender and Sexuality Alliance. She is also the Vice President of her school’s advanced women’s choir, Enchante.
