The beloved and best-selling author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings reads aloud from her third book of verse. She not only gives life to many of her most cherished poems, but she also presents personal introductions to several favorites, including One More Round, Woman Work, and Life Doesn't Frighten Me.

These poems are powerful, distinctive, and fresh, and as always, full of the lifting rhythms of love and remembering. And Still I Rise is written, and read, from the heart, truly a celebration of life.

The thirteen poems included here in their entirety are: A Kind of Love, Some Day; Remembrance; Where We Belong, a Duet; Refusal; California Prodigal; Willie; One More Round; Woman Work; And Still I Rise; Ain't That Bad?; Life Doesn't Frighten Me; On Aging; and Thank You, Lord.
