Poems for Life PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Poems for Life free pdf Gift book, book of inspiration, celebrity book, this is an unforgettable collection of poems recommended by famous people and handed down from one generation to the next. What do Allen Ginsberg and Angela Lansbury have in common? Isabella Rossellini and E. L. Doctorow? Wendy Wasserstein and Yo-Yo Ma? They each have a favorite poem. What's your favorite poem and why? That was the question students from two fifth-grade classes at a New York school asked famous people to whom they had written. Their idea, the students explained, was to put together a book that would benefit the Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children. They were also studying poems in class and wanted to know if anybody still read them and how they felt about them. Touched by this appeal to their hearts, minds, and memories, 50 celebrities responded, including Geraldine Ferraro, Allen Ginsberg, Rudi Giuliani, Peter Jennings, Angela Lansbury, Yo-Yo Ma, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Sawyer, Ally Sheedy, Kurt Vonnegut, and Tom Wolfe. The poems they offer range from John Donne to Langston Hughes, but their letters all express hope that the students will read and take inspiration from a poem that will stay with them for life.
