The Wichita Public Library will celebrate the life and legacy of poet and author Maya Angelou Friday at the library branch named in her honor.
Dr. Angelou died May 28th.
She was a strong proponent of education and was a champion of public libraries. She attended the opening of the city’s Maya Angelou Northeast Branch Library in December of 1996.
Maya Angelou also taught classes at Wichita State University in March of 1974. Sonia Faust is a regular visitor to the Angelou library and has read her books. She says Dr. Angelou was a hero within your reach.
