Amanda Gorman is Blowing Up After The Inauguration


Amanda Gorman's poem at President Biden's Inauguration has put her at the top of Amazon's Best-Sellers list.

After reading her poem, "The Hill We Climb" Gorman's books, "The Hill We Climb" and "Change Sings" are at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, as a pre-order since the books won't be released until September 21.

Barack Obama's "A Promised Land" is at No. 4, Kamala Harris' "Superheroes Are Everywhere" is at No. 8 and Michelle Obama's "Becoming" is at No. 12.

"On a day for the history books, @TheAmandaGorman delivered a poem that more than met the moment. Young people like her are proof that 'there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it; if only we're brave enough to be it.'" Barak Obama posted.

Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Lin-Manuel Miranda also shared her poem, as Gorman's following on Twitter also grew from 50,000 followers to around 1.2 million followers.
