Today, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors appointed Lisa Rosenberg of Menlo Park to the honorary post of Poet Laureate for San Mateo County. Her role as Poet Laureate will be to elevate poetry among San Mateo County residents and to celebrate the literary arts; her two year term will begin on January 1, 2017. After reciting her poem, "The Satellite Sky", she thanked the Board and said this post is a "dream come true." Lisa is a "scientist poet" with a BS degree in Physics from UC Davis, a Master's degree in Creative Writing from Boston University, and like Caroline Goodwin, our current Poet Laureate, she, too, received a Wallace Stegner Fellowship in Poetry from Stanford University. Congratulations, Lisa!
