La Familia: La Casa de Colores, A Poet Laureate Project from Juan Felipe Herrera, U.S. Poet Laureate, 2015- | Library of Congress Poetry and Literature Center:
Every inch of this land is woven with migrant trails. These are pathways from family to family, country to country, and most of all heart to heart. For this month, find a trail and travel through it to a new dream. What do you see in your travels? And how do you make friends along the way? Describe for me in the language of poetry—migrate into new words, use new landscapes of images.
Welcome to La Familia, a feature of Juan Felipe Herrera’s Poet Laureate project La Casa de Colores!
