"Elizabeth Alexander is an inspired choice for this historic role. She is a marvelous poet, an incisive and influential scholar, and one of the great citizens of the literary world. What a joy it will be to see her and hear her at that podium on that day!"--Alice Quinn, in response to Barack Obama's choice of Elizabeth Alexander for the role of inaugural poet
