Maya Angelou's words have been a source of inspiration, comfort, encouragement and strength for millions of people around the world. This three-time Grammy-winner is a poet, a playwright, a producer, a director, a conductor, an actor, a best-selling author, and a social activist. She's also been a pimp, a prostitute, a night-club dancer and performer, and a journalist. A true renaissance woman, she excels at any endeavor she undertakes. She is best known for her series of autobiographies, most notably her first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
, which was published in 1969 and tells of her difficult childhood. Her longstanding friendship with Oprah Winfrey is responsible, in part, for making millions aware of her unique and wisdom-filled voice that transcends racial, economic, and educational boundaries, and her 1993 recitation of her poem On the Pulse of Morning
at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton brought even more recognition and acclaim. Now the woman who has been hailed as one of the greatest public speakers of our time comes to the Hanover Theatre.
