The Librarian of Congres named Donald Hall the nation's new poet laureate on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the small town of Three Oaks, Mich., is looking for one of its own. Not everyone there thinks a poet laureate is necessary for a small town, but others welcome the idea.

Independent producers Dan Collison and Elizabeth Meister of Long Haul Productions sat in on that selection process and profile the eventual winner, Rick Tuttle.
