Eloise Klein Healy is Los Angeles' first Poet Laureate.  For the next two years, Los Angeles looks to her to celebrate important events and to make poetry a public matter.  She has earned this achievement many ways.  She is a professor, a creator of college and post graduate programs, the founder of Arktoi Books, the co-founder of Eco-Arts, and a poet who writes with attention to landscape and the details of daily life.  She has published six collections of poetry and a chapbook.  Her latest collection is brand new this month, _A Wild Surmise:  New and Selected Poems_

She lives in the San Fernando Valley with her partner, Colleen Rooney and their dog, Nikita.  She was born in El Paso and grew up in Iowa,
