Remembering Maya Angelou

Share this

Maya Angelou died at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on Wednesday, May 28, at the age of 86.  She’ll be remembered for her poetry and other literary works, as well as for her contributions to the Civil Rights Movement.  To find her books in the Marin County Free Library, type Angelou, Maya, as an author, into the search box of the Classic Catalog.  If you type Maya Angelou into the search box of the Encore Catalog, you’ll find information both by, and about, her.

I know why the caged bird sings     Mom & me & mom         A song flung up to heaven

Wouldn't take nothing for my journey now     The complete collected poems of Maya Angelou     Even the stars look lonesome

 a lifetime of memories with recipes     Gather together in my name      Letter to my daughter
