Julius Anthony, president of St. Louis Black Authors of Children’s Literature, will join us to discuss the poem by Amanda Gorman “The Hill We Climb”.

This poem was written to celebrate the 2021 inauguration of Joe Biden as 46th President of the United States. The poem celebrates the United States not as a “perfect union,” but as a country that has the grit to struggle with its all-too-real problems.

One of the poem’s messages is a hopeful one, asserting that a new “dawn” is now breaking in which Americans have the opportunity to create a more just and inclusive society.

The book can be purchased at the EyeSeeMe book store located at 6951 Olive Blvd University City, MO 63130.
