So You’re Picking Up Maya Angelou from the Airport…

Poet/Activist/Icon Maya Angelou is in your car. Yeah, it’s pretty intimidating. Don’t sweat it though, I’ve made you a playlist. Just be chill, don’t say anything stupid, and crank the Alice Coltrane.
Check out the Maya Angelou playlist HERE.
I couldn’t think of a better writer with which to wrap up my recent blog series for the Missouri Review. Every other week I chose a famous writer (poetry or prose, living or dead) and curated/commented on the “perfect playlist” for picking them up from the airport. It was a total blast making mixes for some of my all-time favorites such as Margaret Atwood, W.G. Sebald, James Baldwin, & Philip K. Dick. Links to all 1o playlists can be found here.
