Congratulations, Juan Felipe Herrera!

Juan Felipe Herrera, the first Latino to be U.S. poet laureate, is a master of many poetic forms. When I was student at the University of Iowa, I had an experimental writing class with him.  He published one of my poems in an anthology.  It was truly an honor! He then gave me a cassette of Parisa's songs as a gift! Congratulations, Juan Felipe!
