Maya Angelou...and literary lyricism

Special | 26m 45s

We pause to remember Maya Angelou—cultural icon, global artist, and wise elder who died this week at the age of 86. Angelou’s first book, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings became a bestseller 30 years ago. We'll talk about her seminal works and later in the discussion, a conversation we hope Angelou would have appreciated, our favorite books and authors we're taking with us into the summer.
