Looking for the Gulf Motel, City of a Hundred Fires,
Directions to the Beach of the Dead
by Richard Blanco

Maine Poet, Richard Blanco, wrote and delivered his poem, One Today,at President Obama’s inauguration. According to a February 26 article in the Boston GlobeMr. Blanco’s poem “captures . . the glory of watching the sun rise over a diverse yet communally linked population — “millions of faces in morning’s mirrors.”

When the library staff realized we did not have copies of Mr. Blanco’s poetry books, we added them to our Amazon Wish List. A South parent rose to the occasion and we had the books within days!

If you wish to honor a special person by donating a book to the NSHS Library, visit our Wish List at:          NSHS Library Wish List
