About One Today:
“I’m honored that Richard Blanco will join me and Vice President Biden at our second Inaugural,” said the President. “His contributions to the fields of poetry and the arts have already paved the path forward for future generations of writers. Richard’s writing will be wonderfully fitting for an Inaugural that will celebrate the strength of the American people and our nation’s great diversity.”
Dav Pilkey, creator of the bestselling Captain Underpants series, returns to the painterly style of his Caldecott honor book, The Paperboy, bringing this inspiring poem to life.
One Today is a tribute to a nation where the extraordinary happens every single day.
