Richard Blanco has traveled many miles since his appearance reading his poetry at the second Obama inaugural in 2013.
And his travels have taken him to Southern Oregon more than once, including his spending time this summer at the Young Artists Institute at Southern Oregon University. YAI is for high school students to develop their already-demonstrated artistic skills; Richard Blanco will teach creative writing.
His latest book of poems, out this year, is How to Love a Country.
Richard Blanco returns to The Exchange for The Keenest Observers, hosted by Robert Goodwin.
