Traci Brimhall

HPPR Radio Readers Book Club Contributor

Traci Brimhall is the current Poet Laureate of Kansas. She's an avid reader of many genres, but her latest obsession has been reading retellings of Greek myths by authors like Natalie Haynes and Jennifer Saint. Those books help her talk to her 10-year-old son about myths, monsters, and demigods while he reads Percy Jackson. She's a professor of creative writing at Kansas State University and lives in Manhattan, KS.

  • I’m Traci Brimhall for the HPPR Radio Readers Book Club’s Summer Reading List.I haven’t revisited the story of Huck Finn since I read it in high school and watched my brother play the irascible Tom Sawyer in a school musical.
