Richard Blanco: "For All Of Us, One Today"
When the Obama administration selected 44-year-old Richard Blanco to be inaugural poet in 2013, he was the youngest person ever tapped for the honor. Blanco also became the first Latino, the first immigrant and the first openly gay man to address the nation on Inauguration Day. Still to this day, Blanco is not sure how he got the assignment. But that moment of reading his poem to the nation changed him in ways he never imagined. It renewed Blanco’s faith in the power of words and set in him a mission to connect the American public to contemporary poetry. Richard Blanco joins Diane to talk about his new book, “For All of Us, One Today: An Inaugural Poet’s Journey."
