Juan Felipe Herrera is a poet, performer, writer, cartoonist, teacher, and activist. Herrera has been the United States Poet Laureate since 2015 – he was appointed to a second term in April of 2016. He is the first Hispanic poet to hold the position. Herrera's experiences as the child of migrant farmers have strongly shaped his work, such as the children's book Calling the Doves, which won the Ezra Jack Keats Book Award in 1997. Community and art have always been part of what has driven Herrera. The author of 30 books of poetry, novels for young adults and collections for children, Herrera’s most recent work is Portraits of Hispanic American Heroes, a picture book showcasing inspiring Hispanic- and Latino-Americans, and Notes on the Assemblage, a volume of poems.
