Washington State Poet Laureate Claudia Castro Luna builds awareness and appreciation of poetry through public readings, workshops, and presentations. Funded by Friends of the Oak Harbor Library.

Castro Luna fled war-torn El Salvador for the United States at the age of 14 with her family, and went on to earn an MFA in poetry and an MA in urban planning. After working as a K-12 teacher, she became Seattle’s first Civic Poet, a position appointed by the mayor. In that position, Castro Luna won acclaim for her Seattle Poetic Grid, an online interactive map showcasing poems about different locations around the city. She is the author of the poetry chapbook This City, and the collection Killing Marías, and is currently serving as Washington's Poet Laureate. This event is presented in partnership with Humanities Washington and Skagit Valley College, with support from the Friends of Oak Harbor Library.
