Celebrations, Paperback


Grace, dignity, and eloquence have long been hallmarks of Maya Angelou's poetry.

Her measured verses have stirred our souls, energized our minds, and healed our hearts.

Celebrations is a collection of timely and timeless poems: the inspiring 'On the Pulse of Morning', read at President William Jefferson Clinton's 1993 inauguration; the heartening 'Amazing Peace'; 'A Brave and Startling Truth', which marked the fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations; and 'Mother', which beautifully honours the first woman in our lives.

Angelou writes of celebrations public and private. Angelou is a chronicler of history, an advocate for peace, and a champion for the planet, as well as a patriot, a mentor, and a friend.

To be shared and cherished, the wisdom and poetry of Maya Angelou proves there is always cause for celebration.
