Renowned poet visits local elementary school

Posted: Updated:

Tucson(KVOA)- A renowned poet, and the Tucson mayor, paid a visit to a local elementary school Friday.

Kids at Davis Bilingual Elementary Magnet School got a chance to hear some poetry, from U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera.

Herrera won the award back in 2015, and is the child of migrant farm workers, which is a heavy influence in his work.

His children's book "Calling the Doves" won the Ezra Jack Keats book award.

The University of Arizona Poetry Center also gave kids free copies of Herrera's work.
