You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods. Her focus remains on the arts with a bit of social activism thrown in, starting with her award-winning Life Doesn’t Frighten Me, now celebrating twenty-five years in publication. I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly! Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do. The reproductions invite close scrutiny, implicitly teaching the viewer a way of approaching contemporary art and reinforcing the tough beauty of the poem.

Shadows on the wallNoises down the hallLife doesn't frighten me at all Maya Angelou's brave, defiant poem celebrates the courage within each of us, young and old. Editor Sara Jane Boyers shares her professional life between the entertainment industry and the art community. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling.

I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic!

Celebrating its successful 25 years in print, this brilliant introduction to poetry and contemporary art features brief, updated biographies of Angelou and Basquiat, an afterword from the editor, and a fresh new look. At the request of President Clinton, she wrote and delivered a poem at his 1993 presidential inauguration. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Boyers, a TV producer and art collector, deserves a standing ovation for her performance in pairing Angelou's poem with abstract paintings by the late Basquiat.

Both a handsome art book and a rhythmic read-aloud, this is great for sharing with audiences of many ages. What’s more, we see the cacophony of ‘ Mean old Mother Goose/ Lions on the loose‘ in Basquiat’s background image, a seeming child-like snarl. While Bookwagon offers a wealth of classic poetry collections, such as included within Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright, this is a rare isolated poetry publication.

It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you. Basquiat's first works were drawn onto the walls of Manhattan buildings, and the frenzied, sometimes angry compositions here have the rawness of graffiti. Her second book, O BEAUTIFUL FOR SPACIOUS SKIES, created a "conversation" between Wayne Thiebaud's paintings and our unofficial American hymn written by one of our first suffragettes, Katharine Lee Bates. What’s more, while the work was not intended for children, in this edition from Sarah Jane Boyers, we see its immediacy and relevance to a young audience.Bookwagon recommends Life Doesn’t Frighten Me as a poem to know, recite, love and this edition as a book to keep and gift.
