Juan Felipe Herrera : from migrant to poet laureate / Tammy Gagne.

Gagne, Tammy, (author.).



"Juan Felipe Herrera had an unusual childhood traveling with his migrant parents from one farm to another. They did not speak much English, but they taught him much about the world around him. For this family it was a world that spanned two countries, Mexico and the United States. Young Juan learned early that his life had a lot in common with great literature. He loved stories from the time his mother first told them to him. Read more about Juan Felipe Herrera as he discovers his own voice and the road that led to him becoming the first Latino poet laureate in the United States." -- Publisher summary.
