In conversation with Tom Lutz, editor-in-chief, Los Angeles Review of Books
April 20, 2016

Juan Felipe Herrera grew up the son of Mexican immigrants in the migrant fields of California, and became the first Latino Poet Laureate of the United States. Exuberant and socially engaged, reflective and healing, wildly inventive and unpredictable, the award-winning poet will discuss his life’s work as it ranges from Aztlan to Paris, San Bernardino to Florida and back; from Larry King and Oprah, to the Janis Joplin days in the City by the Bay. Listen in on this brimming, wide-open evening as Herrera blazes the endless chasms of culture on the “Laureate Trail.”
