uthor and poet Maya Angelou once said: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” And while few have forgotten Angelou’s words, immortalized forever in her groundbreaking 1969 memoir I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
and other works, Friday presents an excellent opportunity to remind yourself how this author makes you feel.
