A Tribute to Maya Angelou, Winter 2015
Monday, February 9, 2015
noon - 1:30 p.m.
Williman Room, Benson Memorial Center
The Library invites you to join us at a luncheon to celebrate the life and work of Maya Angelou, the world renowned author, poet, and civil rights activist. A mouth-watering menu has been selected from recipes in Maya Angelou's book Hallelujah! The Welcome Table: A Lifetime of Memories with Recipes.
This event features a line-up of guests from across campus. Aldo Billingslea, Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion as well as a professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, will recite some of Maya Angelou's poems, along with student Regina Fields. Additionally, Allia Ida Griffin, professor in the English Department, will provide a short overview of Maya Angelou's life and work.
Bon Appétit will cater the event. Two lucky guests will win 2 tickets to the next Literary Cuisine event or a copy of the book.
All proceeds from this event were donated to Friends of African Village Libraries (FAVL), an organization founded by SCU professors Michael Kevane and Leslie Gray.
