Heard on Campus: Maya Angelou

March 23, 2010

"I was a writer who thought I could teach, but I'm really a teacher who could write. And I'm delighted to come back (to Penn State). It's always a wonderful experience being here. ... I know you didn't expect me to preach, and I didn't bring a Bible, but I am here to say a few things and I mean to say them."

-- Maya Angelou, author of the award-winning autobiography "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," speaking in Eisenhower Auditorium on Tuesday, March 23. Angelou was the latest orator of the Distinguished Speaker Series held throughout the year by the Student Programming Association.
