Inside you will discover 99 poems as diverse and original as the state itself. Texas State Poet Laureate Laurie Ann Guerrero opens the calendar with a poem on the inside front cover. As you turn the pages, you’ll see names that have appeared in our calendar before, keeping company with poets who are published here for the first time. You’ll find young poets, established poets, and award-winning poets. You’ll find poems that invite multiple readings.
