I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings // Maya Angelou.
In this most poetic and wondrous book, Maya introduces her first 16 years of life. She writes with honor, humility, and humor. As she bravely shares her moments of weakness and shame, one sees both her frailty and durability — it wasn’t easy being a black girl in the South during the Depression. Yet, Maya, in her own unique ways, prevails. This is a book that should be read and re-read.
