The city of Duluth has something no other Minnesota city has: its own poet laureate.
Barton Sutter has lived in the city since 1987 and has won three Minnesota Book awards, including for "Cold Comfort: Life at the Top of the Map" and for "The Book of Names: New and Selected Poems." Sutter teaches English and creative writing at the University of Wisconsin-Superior and was the unanimous choice for Poet Laureate. He began his two-year term on Saturday.
Barton Sutter talked to Minnesota Public Radio's Tom Crann.
