US poet laureate Ada Limón has unveiled her signature project, You Are Here.
It will comprise two major initiatives: an anthology of nature poems and poetry installations at seven national parks.
The former, titled You Are Here: Poetry in the Natural World, will come out April 2 with original work from fifty American poets.
The latter, dubbed You Are Here: Poetry in Parks, will turn park features into public art and add poetry that's tailored to each site.
These seven parks are: Cape Cod National Seashore (Massachusetts); Cuyahoga Valley National Park (Ohio); Great Smoky Mountains National Park (North Carolina/Tennessee); Everglades National Park (Florida); Mount Rainier National Park (Washington); Redwood National and State Parks (California); and Saguaro National Park (Arizona).
