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.

  2. Sounds like a fascinating book. Will check it out!

  3. Can’t wait to check this one out!
