Poet Maya Angelou recovering after hospitalization
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — One of Maya Angelou's doctors says the poet and author is recovering at her North Carolina home following a brief hospitalization.
Dr. Jeff Williamson of the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., says in letter dated Tuesday that, as leader of Angelou's medical team, he has ordered the 85-year-old to forego any travel for the next three to four weeks.
The letter was sent to Angelou's speaker's bureau, MacRae Speakers & Entertainment LLC. A message seeking further details was left for the Pembroke, Mass.-based company.
Butler University in Indianapolis announced Angelou had canceled an appearance scheduled for Thursday after being notified by the speaker's bureau.
Among Angelou's most acclaimed works is the 1969 autobiographical work "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."
