On 20 January 2021, Amanda Gorman spoke a message of truth and hope to millions.

Aged twenty-two, she delivered a poetry reading at the inauguration of US President Joe Biden. Her poem, 'The Hill We Climb', addressed the country and reached across the world: a call for a brave future.

This special edition, which includes an enduring foreword by Oprah Winfrey, marks that poem and offers us courage, consolation and the inspiration to make change.

'I was profoundly moved as I watched you read your poem 'The Hill We Climb' at last month's Inauguration. The power of your words blew me away' Michelle Obama, TIME

'When that young, vibrant, charismatic woman walked to the front of the platform in her bright yellow coat and that magnificent presence, I was thrilled' Hillary Clinton

'If the hardest part of an artist's job is to fully and honestly meet the moment, Amanda delivered a master class [at the inauguration]. She spoke truth to power and embodied clear-eyed hope to a weary nation. She revealed us to ourselves' Lin-Manuel Miranda, TIME

This is the hardback edition
