2 professors at UC Riverside receive Guggenheim Fellowships
Date:4/26/2010

rrera, who holds the Toms Rivera Endowed Chair in the Department of Creative Writing, has won numerous awards for his poetry, novels and children's stories. Among those awards are the 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award for his poetry collection "Half of the World in Light: New and Selected Poems," which also was one of the New York Times Book Review's "100 Notable Books of 2008."

Tom Lutz, chair of the Department of Creative Writing, noted that Herrera is the third creative writing faculty member in four years to receive a Guggenheim fellowship. Last year's National Book Critics Circle Award and now the Guggenheim "are simply the latest honors in an incredibly productive and significant life as writer."

"I always say that Juan Felipe is a 24-hour poet, that I have rarely heard him speak in prose, something he does only under duress," Lutz said. "But the fact is that he writes not just poetry but fiction, children''s books, musicals, plays and other performance pieces, and unclassifiable things as well. He is a very important teacher for us, too, one who epitomizes the best of what makes UCR what it is, an energetic and empathetic educator in this home of incredible diversity and challenge."

The son of migrant farm workers, Herrera has written 24 books ranging from children's literature to poetry, produced plays and promoted the literature of other Chicano writers. He has more than 100 articles, poems, reviews and essays in print. Among his award-winning books are "187 Reasons Mexicanos Can't Cross the Border," "Downtown Boy," "Calling the Doves," "Crashboomlove" and Featherless/Desplumado."
