I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou Finding out more about this author's life is always interesting. She tells about the good and the bad and how she felt, and she always seems to keep a good outlook on life. It helps me to get over some of the petty things in my own life.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is the first of seven memoirs that Maya Angelou wrote. This book tells of her life from childhood to the age of seventeen - the years 1928 to 1945. The story is a harsh and sad one, dealing with poverty, racism, abandonment, rape, sexual abuse, and teenage pregnancy. It is inspirational not in its writing but in the fact that Maya Angelou had courage to live this life, to move forward from the events described, and to tell the story in such a public way.

Life Doesn't Frighten Me - Maya Angelou, Jean-Michel Basquiat (Illustrator)
Life Doesn't Frighten Me - Maya Angelou,Jean-Michel Basquiat (Illustrator),Jean-Michel Basquat

I really can't imagine that I would have cared much for the art of Basquiat if the editor hadn't done such a fabulous job of pairing the words with the pictures. The result feels like a close collaboration, rather than an after-the-fact pairing. Nice back matter, for those who care, too.

And a shout-out to my local librarians who always find new books to tempt me with in their displays, even when I'm in  bit of a reading slump.
