Memoirs & Coffee library book group will discuss Maya Angelou's memoir entitled Mom & Me & Mom on Tuesday, May 27, at 10:30 a.m. in the Community Room. Ms. Angelou writes a deeply personal memoir of the mother/daughter relationship, starting with the point when her own mother sent a very young Maya and her brother to live with a grandmother. Natural feelings of abandonment and loss become tempered by a growing sense of respect and love for her mother over the years. This book should give the reader new insights into Maya Angelou and how her life affected her literature. Copies of Mom & Me & Mom are available at the circulation desk for anyone who would like to attend this book discussion.
