On January 20, 2009, Elizabeth Alexander served as the fourth- ever inaugural poet and a central participant in one of the most closely watched inaugurations in American history. Selected by Barack Obama, Alexander composed and delivered her original poem “Praise Song for the Day” to an audience of millions, and now the poem can be read and savored for posterity. Printed on heavy, uncoated stock and bound with French flaps and a silver foil stamp, this collectible chapbook is a cherished reminder of this monumental presidential event.

By Elizabeth Alexander. Paperback. 28 pages. Published by Graywolf Press, 2009.
