 Richard Blanco already had a number of accomplishments under his belt. 

And then he was invited to deliver one of his poems at the second inauguration of President Obama. 

Blanco is known for his poetry and for his ability to connect with students.  He'll get a chance to connect with an audience during an appearance in Ashland tonight (March 3), and he'll join us in the studio beforehand.
