Description

The breakout poetry collection by Sunday Times bestselling author and presidential inaugural poet Amanda Gorman’This is more than protest. It’s a promise.’Including ‘The Hill We Climb,’ the stirring poem read at the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden, this luminous poetry collection by Amanda Gorman captures a shipwrecked moment in time and transforms it into a lyric of hope and healing.

In Call Us What We Carry, Gorman explores history, language, identity, and erasure through an imaginative and intimate collage.

Harnessing the collective grief of a global pandemic, these seventy poems shine a light on a moment of reckoning and reveal that Gorman has become our messenger from the past, our voice for the future. Praise for ‘The Hill We Climb’:’I was profoundly moved…

The power of your words blew me away’ Michelle Obama, TIME’I was thrilled’ Hillary Clinton’She spoke truth to power and embodied clear-eyed hope to a weary nation.

She revealed us to ourselves’ Lin-Manuel Miranda, TIME
