Artist's Corner - Juan Felipe Herrera
WASHINGTON (AP) — A son of migrant farm workers in California, Juan Felipe Herrera will be the next U.S. poet in chief.
The Library of Congress announced Wednesday the appointment of Herrera as the nation's 21st poet laureate for 2015 through 2016, beginning in September. Herrera, 66, whose parents emigrated from Mexico, will be the nation's first Latino poet laureate since the position was created in 1936.
