    Name: Creativity For Change featuring Juan Felipe Herrera
    Date: August 2, 2019 - August 4, 2019
    Event Description:
    At this Symposium, workshops will be geared towards the theme of Creativity Juan Felipe Herrera will join us as our creative writing workshop leader, keynote reader and presenter. In 2015 Juan Felipe Herrera was appointed the 21st United States Poet Laureate, the first Mexican American to hold the position. Herrera grew up in California as the son to migrant farmers, which he has commented strongly shaped much of his work. A Washington Post article tells the story that “As a child, Herrera learned to love poetry by singing about the Mexican Revolution with his mother, a migrant farmworker in California. Inspired by her spirit, he has spent his life crossing borders, erasing boundaries and expanding the American chorus.”
