Juan Felipe Herrera named U.S. Poet Laureate!

The Library of Congress announced on June 10 that Juan Felipe Herrera will be the new Poet Laureate of the U.S.! Herrera, who succeeds Charles Wright as Poet Laureate, is the first Hispanic poet to serve in the position. He said, "This is a mega-honor for me, for my family and my parents who came up north before and after the Mexican Revolution of 1910-the honor is bigger than me."

 

Here's a couple of Herrera's many, many excellent works:

 

187 Reasons Mexicanos Can't Cross the Border: Undocuments 1971-2007          Loteria Cards and Fortune Poems: A Book of Lives
