Notes From Your Bookseller

Maybe you have seen or heard the Inaugural Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman’s poem from the 2021 inauguration, or maybe, you love sports as much as you do books and saw Gorman read at the Super Bowl. Let those last two words sink in. Super Bowl. Then, add POET and watch your heart fill with joy at that equation. For many reasons, we could not all be at the inauguration. But you can now have a keepsake with this beautiful, rich, and deeply moving poem in your very hands. A poem to start and end each of our days. To quote Gorman, “For there is always light."
