Come meet Richard Blanco and join in a discussion with the writer and other readers about Blanco’s memoir, “For All of Us, One Today: An Inaugural Poet’s Journey.”

The Washington Center for the Book at The Seattle Public Library invites everyone to participate in Seattle Reads “For All of Us, One Today: An Inaugural Poet’s Journey,” a project designed to deepen engagement in literature through reading and discussion. Author Richard Blanco visits Seattle April 26-29. Events are presented in partnership with The Elliott Bay Book Co. and Open Books: A Poem Emporium. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Blanco tells of his experiences as 2013 inaugural poet, the fifth in history and the youngest, first immigrant, Latino, gay writer to hold the honor. He reveals the inspiration and challenges behind the creation of the poem, “One Today,” and reflects on his life-changing role as a public voice after the inauguration.

Seattle Reads is made possible by The Seattle Public Library Foundation and The Wallace Foundation, with additional support from media sponsors The Seattle Times and KUOW 94.9 Public Radio, and Beacon Press, The Elliott Bay Book Co., and Open Books: A Poem Emporium.
