Celebrations: Rituals of Peace and Power

by Maya Angelou - £8.99  Little, Brown Book Group (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844086153 | ISBN 10: 1844086151

Grace, dignity, and eloquence have long been hallmarks of Maya Angelouís 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 Clintonís 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.
