U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera spoke Tuesday evening at Winter Words at Aspen's Paepcke Auditorium. He has been on the road since June when he was named to the nation's highest poetic honor. He told The Aspen Times this week that poems come to him "in a big chariot, so I have to write them fast."
