U.S. poet laureate visits CSUMB
Poets are prominent at this year’s edition of Summer Arts, but the most prominent may be Juan Felipe Herrera, newly named U.S. poet laureate. In June, the Library of Congress made him the 21st person to hold that title. When he starts his tenure in September, he’ll be the first Chicano poet laureate, writing and speaking in English and Spanish. Herrera will read at the World Theater at 7 p.m., July 21. He's also one of the instructors for a poetry course offered as part of Summer Arts.
