The One For Whom Food Is Not Enough—Amanda Gorman

I’m honored to feature this courageous and inspiring book: The One For Whom Food Is Not Enough

“Amanda Gorman draws from deep wells—of ancestors, community, suffering souls, vibrant women, hungry youth, radiant courage, and the un-mined gold of language. Many poets have come before, but no one with the twists, turns and surprises that Amanda brings to the page and in performance. Don’t doubt she’s going to be a major literary figure in this country, if not the world.”
—Luis J. Rodriguez, Poet Laureate of Los Angeles, author “Always Running, La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.”

  1. This sounds like a book our reading group at Seacoast African American Cultural Center should consider … thanks, Heidi, for featuring it!

      What a great idea Susan! I’m excited that Amanda Gorman has agreed to be one of our Gutsy Goddess soon. Who knows perhaps she might consider speaking or performing one of her poems for the Center or the Loft/Music Hall in the future. Her videos are very moving and I believe her book would generate a powerful discussion for the SAACC Book Club.

      • I am trying to find a copy of this book for a presentation to my poetry group. I have been unable to find a copy. I would delight in purchasing one or even borrowing one and I will return it to you quickly along with a bonus book by another of the poets we have studied. Many thanks for your help.

    • Hi Jermaine, I emailed Amanda but she is in the middle of finals and said she would get back to me. I suspect it is out of print. I hope she does another print run as several people have requested it. Thanks for your question. I will let you know if I find our more.
