A Conversation With Poet Richard Blanco

Richard Blanco broke a lot of barriers in one gust of cold air this month. As the poet at the second Obama inauguration, he became the first openly gay, first immigrant, first Latino and youngest ever inaugural poet. Blanco was born in Spain to Cuban exiles.

You can see and hear him in person when he's at the Hill-Stead's Sunken Garden Poetry Festival this summer.
