CALL US BY WHAT WE CARRY by Amanda Gorman
(A++) A book of poetry by the amazing young woman who read one of her poems at the Inauguration ceremony on January 20 of last year. Her words spoke to the hearts of those attending and the millions of Americans that watched. I have always loved poetry, both ancient and modern and everything in between and was stunned as I listened to her words that cold January day. I was so happy to see this book come out and have found the poetry contained just as passionate and elegant as the one she read. If you like poetry and are looking for a new voice, this one is for you.
