Amanda Gorman - Youth Poet Laureate

For those who are wondering if they can pre-order Amanda Gorman's books, which are due out later this year, we have a few suggestions:

(1) Pre-order the special edition of "The Hill We Climb," which will be available in April: order here.

(2) For her books due out in the fall, which are not yet available for pre-order on our website, donate the price of the books to us (see below for pricing) and put the number you want and the title in the comments section. We will contact you when the books arrive (currently scheduled for September).

(3) Pre-order the books at www.bookshop.org, where pre-order is currently available for all books. All profits made by Bookshop are shared by member bookstores throughout the country, of which we are one. (This is always a better option than resorting to the Online Vampire Squid.)

Note on Redeeming Gift Cards

HUGE thanks to everyone who has given This House of Books as holiday gifts! If you are the lucky recipient of one but would prefer to redeem yours at a distance, here are a few notes:

(1) Unfortunately, our e-commerce platform is not sophisticated enough (yet) to accept gift cards easily as a form of payment for online orders.

(2) You can still use the website to find what you would like to purchase with your gift card.

(3) To redeem your gift card and have your selected titles delivered to you, do one of two things:

(a) Give us a call (406-534-1133). We can take the gift card information over the phone, along with your address, and ship your books to you anywhere in the US.

(b) Order your books through our online system, and make sure to type the 16-digit number on the back of the gift card into the comments along with a message telling us you'd like to apply that gift card to your order. You will still have to also put in your credit card information, but we will be able to manually charge your gift card and then apply any balance to your credit card.
