She is the author of five books of poetry (Backbone, Under the Sun, What My Hand Say, Three Harriets & Others, The Listening Skin) with one more book set to publish this year. Her poetry has been showcased on NPR and PBS and most recently published in Orion Magazine, southStory, and The New York Times. Redmond has spent almost three decades touring the country as a poet and teaching artist. In 2020, Redmond received the highest arts award in South Carolina, the Governor’s Award. She was inducted into the South Carolina Academy of Authors in April.

After major renovations, State Theatre New Jersey reopened and celebrated its 100th Anniversary in December 2021 in a fully renovated theater including newly renovated lobbies, all new restrooms, upgraded HVAC systems, a new elevator for access to all levels, and brand-new theater seats. Originally built as a silent film and vaudeville palace, State Theatre’s historic significance was honored by PBS by featuring it in its documentary series, Treasures of New Jersey, in the fall of 2018. “Treasures of New Jersey: State Theatre New Jersey” can be streamed online.
