Juan Felipe Herrera, the son of Mexican migrant workers, was named Poet Laureate of the United States. He is the first Latino to be appointed to this Library of Congress post.

“The Poet Laureate receives a modest stipend and is expected to present one major poetic work and to appear at certain national ceremonies.”
