After a few eventful years, Black Mountain Institute settles under new director
It's been an eventful couple of years at Black Mountain Institute.
Despite national attention and acclaim for UNLV's literary arm, a former executive director resigned in disgrace in 2021. Then, funding for BMI’s major literary magazine was cut, leading to a controversial sale.
To the rescue came Colette LaBouff.
The former executive director of New Mexico’s Taos Center for the Arts, as well as a published poet, LaBouff had a lot of work to do with a smaller staff.
And in June 2022, she got to work.
And she’s here to tell us what she and BMI have experienced and accomplished over the past year.
Guest: Colette LaBouff, executive director, Black Mountain Institute, UNLV
