first things first: have you seriously not entered our fab giveaway from shannon nicole yet? you have all weekend, but just do it now, before you lapse into a sugar coma tonight from eating all of the leftover candy (or, in my case, the candy you hid for just that purpose). entries close sunday at midnight…so hop to it!
now, as for our weekend read:
maya angelou is very high on my “if you could have tea with anyone, living or dead” list…it’s pretty much her and hillary clinton. i just think she’s amazing. letter to my daughter was written as that “here’s what i’ve learned in my life” everyone wishes their parent would write for them, only better expressed. “i have all along known that i wanted to tell you directly some lessons i have learned and under what conditions i had learned them.” see? dedicated to all of her “daughters” (she actually only has a son by birth) everywhere, this is a must-purchase for all of you…trust me.
every time i read maya angelou’s writing, i sit up a little straighter, i’m a little more kind (for a while), and the world just looks better. what more can you ask from a literary experience? this is a weekend read pick that you should read, and then pass on to a woman in your life that you love…i know i will be.
