Richard Blanco Is 2013 Inaugural Poet


On December 8, Richard Blanco read in the Poetry Center's Distinguished Poets Series with Patricia Smith.  Four days later Richard learned that he would be the 2013 Inaugural Poet, joining the ranks of notables like Robert Frost and Maya Angelou. 

Today the news was made official. See The NY Times article, Poet’s Kinship With the President. Congratulations Richard!  Well deserved!
