Publisher Comments:

Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, Letter to My Daughter reveals Maya Angelous path to living well and living a life with meaning. Here in short spellbinding essays are glimpses of the tumultuous life that taught Angelou lessons in compassion and fortitude: how she was brought up by her indomitable grandmother in segregated Arkansas, taken in at thirteen by her more worldly and less religious mother, and grew to be an awkward six-foot-tall teenager whose first experience of loveless sex paradoxically left her with her greatest gift, a son.

Whether she is recalling lost friends such as Coretta Scott King and Ossie Davis, extolling honesty, decrying vulgarity, explaining why becoming a Christian is a “lifelong endeavor,” or simply singing the praises of a meal of red rice, Maya Angelou writes from the heart to millions of women she considers her extended family.

Synopsis:

Down-to-earth, real, and inspiring, this volume of distilled wisdom from beloved author and playwright Maya Angelou contains essays that invite one along on an inspirational journey that explores ideas garnered from a life well lived.
