Librarian Pick-of-the-Week: February 7, 2022

This week’s Pick-of-the-Week is brought to you by Trista, and is Call Us What We Carry – a collection of poems by Amanda Gorman, the youngest inaugural poet in American history.

“A soaring sense of history and solidarity pervades Gorman’s debut collection. Part elegy, part documentary record, and part witness statement, Call Us What We Carry is first and foremost ‘a letter to the world’. . . “

“It urges us to revisit the checkered history of intersectional injustices and re-evaluate our fragile species, systems and planet, engulfed by the pandemic, personal grief and public grievances.”

Look for it on our New Arrivals shelf today!
