The Current Poet Laureate of the United States is Juan Felipe Herrera. No, that's not him in the photo above. That's one of our super student employees, John. You can find out more about Juan Felipe Herrera at the Library of Congress http://www.loc.gov/poetry/laureate.html Copies of his works Exiles of Desire, Mayan Drifter and Border-Crosser with a Lamborghini Dream are included in the poetry display at the Circulation desk as well as works by former Poet Laureates. The display was arranged by Laura Coleman of Access Services.
