The beloved and bestselling author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings reads aloud from her third book of verse. She not only gives life to many of her most cherished poems, but she also presents personal introductions to several favorites, including "One More Round," "Woman Work," and "Life Doesn't Frighten Me."
These poems are powerful, distinctive, and fresh -- and, as always, full of the lifting rhythms of love and remembering. And Still Rise is written, and read, from the heart -- truly a celebration of life.
The thirteen unabridged poems included here are: "A Kind of Love, Some Say," " Remembrance," "Where We Belong, a Duet," "Refusal," "California Prodigal," "Willie," "One More Round," "Woman Work," "Still I Rise," "Ain't That Bad?," " Life Doesn't Frighten Me," "On Aging," and "Thank You, Lord."
