Top Poet

The nation has a new top poet.

The Library of Congress last week named Charles Simic as the new poet laureate for the country. He's written 18 book of poetry. He replaces the previous laureate, Donald Hall.

For more about Simic, check out the Library of Congress information on him here.

For another interview with him, check out NPR's chat with him, which includes Simic reading a poem.
