"As a writer/editor/fine art photographer, my interest has always been in the conversations, the interplay of words and imagery that form many interpretive intersections that define expression and creativity. That is why I had created a several books bringing some of these conversations to the world. LIFE DOESN’T FRIGHTEN ME (now in its 25 th Anniversary Edition) where I married the powerful and expressive artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat with the empowering words of Dr. Maya Angelou’s eponymous 1978 poem is just one of them. So, whether for children or for all, my own personal stack of books in the time of covid naturally runs to these, whether old favorites that remain on my bedside bookshelf or new, provocative ones that continue to offer creative inspiration and, of course, growing knowledge of the human
condition." —Sara Jane Boyers
