Amanda Gorman Book

Amanda Gorman Book

University Press returns with another short and captivating biography of one of history's most compelling figures, Amanda Gorman. Amanda Gorman was born on March 7, 1998, in Los Angeles, California. She and her twin sister were raised by a single mother - a teacher - who restricted the young Amanda's access to television and inspired in her a love for reading, writing, and language. The young Gorman was a self-described "weird child" who had a speech impediment and preferred to read books while other children her age were playing on the playground. Inspired by her mother and by a host of personal heroes that included Maya Angelou and Malala Yousafzai, Amanda excelled in school, found her voice, started a nonprofit, became a youth delegate for the United Nations, published her first poetry book at age sixteen, earned a college scholarship, graduated from Harvard University, and became the first person ever to be named National Youth Poet Laureate. On January 20, 2021, Amanda Gorman, at age twenty-two, became the youngest poet in American history to read at a presidential inauguration. Just two weeks after an angry mob had stormed the United States Capitol Building, Gorman, wearing a sunny yellow coat and a bright red headband, approached the microphone in front of that same building and reminded a divided and battered nation that "...there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it." This short book tells the intensely human story of a woman who is changing the world in a way that no one else can.

Together In A Sudden Strangeness

Together In A Sudden Strangeness

In this urgent outpouring of American voices, our poets speak to us as they shelter in place, addressing our collective fear, grief, and hope from eloquent and diverse individual perspectives.As the novel coronavirus and its devastating effects began to spread in the United States and around the world, Alice Quinn reached out to poets across the country to see if, and what, they were writing under quarantine. Overwhelmed by the response, the onetime New Yorker poetry editor and recent former director of the Poetry Society of America began collecting the compassionate verses that were arriving in her inbox, assembling this various, intimate, and intricate portrait of our suddenly altered reality. Whether grieving for relatives they are separated from, recovering from illness themselves, attending to suddenly complicated household tasks, or considering the bravery of medical workers and the inequities in our society that amplify sorrow and demand our engagement, our poets are just like us, but with the words to describe what can feel unspeakably difficult and strange. From fierce and resilient to wistful, darkly humorous, and emblematically reverent about the earth and the vulnerability of human beings in frightening times, the poems in this collection provide wisdom and companionship, depths of feeling that enliven our spirits, and a poignant summoning to the page of spring's inevitable return.
