Letter to My Daughter
2008 -Random House
This letter has taken an extraordinary time getting itself together. I have know all along that I wanted to tell you directly of some of the lessons I learned and under what circumstances I have learned them.
This is a book I have been longing to read since I first heard of it's publication. I checked it out from our public library and by the feel of the book, the way the pages turn, I think I may be the first one to check it out. That makes me sad.
On the back cover is this blub: " I gave birth to one child, a son, but I have thousands of daughters. You are Black and White, Jewish and Muslim, Asian, Spanish-speaking, Native American and Aleut. You are fat and thin and pretty and plain, gay and straight, educated and unlettered, and I am speaking to you all. Here is my offering to you."
Have you read any of Ms. Angelou's other books? Would you read this one?
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
