My sister-in-law, Lisa Silverberg Starr, has recently been appointed Poet Laureate of Rhode Island. I am in a quandary as to how to properly address her now.
Do you think Lisa, Her Poet Laureateness, is correct? I tried to "google" an answer but to no avail. Then I thought, there is one person who knows the answers to life's toughest questions: Garrison Keillor!
Hope to see you next year at the 5th Annual Block Island Poetry Project.
Billy Collins, a former two-time Poet Laureate of the United States, was on the show last weekend and with Billy I just say "Serene Highness" and that's all that's necessary. Of course I do not look him directly in the eye unless he looks me in the eye. And there is some bowing involved. I don't know if all of this pertains to Rhode Island, a state that is more like a county. Maybe you should simply address her as O Starr and then hum.
Block Island? Is that around here? And why a "project"? Why not a festival?
