Hillary opens this season of You and Me Both with something we could all use right about now: hope. Joining her is Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, who inspired so many people with her stirring poem, The Hill We Climb, on Inauguration Day. Amanda talks with Hillary about what it means to tell the story of America, her earliest poems, and how her relationship with her twin sister shaped her language. Together, they strategize about Amanda’s 2036 presidential campaign.
Amanda Gorman is the first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate. She recently performed at President Biden's Inauguration and the Super Bowl LV. The special edition of her inaugural poem, The Hill We Climb, is available in March. Her debut picture book, Change Sings, and first poetry collection, The Hill We Climb and Other Poems, will be out this September.
