Margaret Walker(1915-2015) Centenary: Wonder of the Book

This Is My Century: Margaret Walker Centennial

This Is My Century: Margaret Walker Centennial, Jackson State University, 2015.

 

Margaret Walker(1915-2015) had her Centennial in 2015.  I wrote about her poetry for a previous Margaret Monday, and it was a pleasure to discover that places were planning events for the Centennial.  The University of Delaware Library had an exhibit, Margaret Walker: A Centenary, with a cool series of book covers, which you can view online.

I resonate with this quote:

“When I was about eight, I decided that the most wonderful thing, next to a human being, was a book.”

Margaret Walker
