Event description
Barnes & Noble welcomes bestselling author and presidential inaugural poet Amanda Gorman to virtually discuss CALL US WHAT WE CARRY!

About this event

Join Barnes & Noble as we welcome #1 New York Times bestselling author and presidential inaugural poet Amanda Gorman, for a live, virtual discussion of CALL US WHAT WE CARRY, the luminous poetry collection that captures a shipwrecked moment in time and transforms it into a lyric of hope and healing.

She will be in conversation with Eve L. Ewing.

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 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.

**BONUS!: All book tickets will include a beautiful pencil set, while supplies last.
