"The Painted Word Poetry Series" Interviews Tina Chang

Tina Chang, author of Of Gods and Strangers, one of our Fall 2011 titles, was interviewed by The Painted Word Poetry Series.

"Tina Chang has it all going on, she is a mom, leader, poet, strong female role model, and Brooklyn’s 1st Female Poet Laureate. What I found to be most inspiring about my chat with Tina, was how much she is driven to make poetry something everyone can access, and feel excited about. All too often poetry can seem like something alienating, especially if you don’t have a lot of education about it. One of her goals as laureate is to alleviate some of this stigma through community outreach, and art projects around her neighborhood."
