Natasha Trethewey is the 19th Poet Laureate of the United States and the author of four collections of poetry that unites compelling personal imagery with clear-eyed examination of African and African-American history: Domestic Work (2000), Bellocq’s Ophelia (2002), Native Guard (2006)—for which she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize—and, most recently, Thrall, (2012). Her book of nonfiction, Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, appeared in 2010. She has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation, among others.
