  About The Book

One Today is a poem celebrating America.

President Barack Obama invited Richard Blanco to write a poem to share at his second presidential inauguration.

That poem is One Today, a lush and lyrical, patriotic commemoration of America from dawn to dusk and from coast to coast.

Brought to life here by beloved, award-winning artist Dav Pilkey, One Today is a tribute to a nation where the extraordinary happens every single day.

  Praise

"I'm honored that Richard Blanco will join me and Vice President Biden at our second Inaugural. 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."
—President Barack Obama

"One Today is an evocative visual rendering of the poem Richard Blanco composed for President Obama's second inauguration. The fullness of our multicultural society on display in this remarkable read can lead to talk about how the United States exemplifies the words on our national seal...." Los Angeles Times
