U.S. Poet Laureate

Next spring we welcome back Juan Felipe Herrera, son of migrant farmworkers and the first Latino poet named U.S. poet laureate.

Juan Felipe Herrera, the first Latino to be named to this position, returns to campus May 4, 2016, for a day of activities with faculty and students. The event is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences Center for the Arts and Humanities. The Santa Clara Review hosted Herrera in 2013, when he was poet laureate of California. Herrera is the author of 29 books—and he was delighted to get the invitation from his mentor, Professor Emeritus Francisco Jiménez ’66.
