Karen Head pictured with her latest collection of poems, "Lost on Purpose."

Karen Head is executive director of the communication center at Georgia Institute of Technology. She's also the Waffle House Poet Laureate. The designation came after a Waffle House foundation-funded poetry tour project for under-served Georgia high school students.

Head's newest collection of poem is called Lost on Purpose. She stopped by On Second Thought to share her recommendations for the "Southern Reading List." For the series, we invite authors and readers to talk about books that define and reflect the South. 

Karen Head shares her picks for our "Southern Reading List."

Head recommended William Wright's The Southern Poet Anthology, Volume V: Georgia and Collin Kelley's Render.
