Amanda S. C. Gorman is an American poet and activist. Her work focuses on issues of oppression, feminism, race, and marginalization, as well as the African diaspora. Gorman was the first person to be named National Youth Poet Laureate.

Check out Amanda Gorman on YouTube and during her presentation for the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 7, 2021! Let us know what you think of her poetry!  Should the library have someone like Amanda join a virtual teen presentation for the library?  Are there other poets that you would like to meet on a virtual program?
 
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
