Gentry’s most recent collection of poems, “Portrait of the Artist as a White Pig,” was published by the Louisiana State University Press. She traveled with the Kentucky Humanities Council to Washington, D.C., in February to read her poem “Alexander Gardner’s Nov. 8, 1863, Photograph of Lincoln” during the presentation of Our Lincoln.

As poet laureate, Gentry is also a member of KHC’s Speakers Bureau. For information on how to book Gentry as a speaker through the humanities council, click here.
