Garden Party in Honor of Dr. Maya Angelou
April 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
For 30 years Dr. Maya Angelou inspired generations of Wake Forest students to become better writers, thinkers and citizens. She frequently enjoyed “garden parties” with friends and family in her own backyard. Bailey Park serves as a wonderful location to celebrate her birthday, uniting natural beauty with the vibrant cultural and arts community in downtown Winston-Salem. We use this event to celebrate community, storytelling, art and the spirit of one of the most influential artists, poets, and voices of our time, the incomparable Dr. Maya Angelou. Co-hosted by Wake Downtown and Z. Smith Reynolds Library, this event is free and open to the public, and will include spoken word performances, music, refreshments, and lawn games.
All are welcome to sign up to share their favorite poetry and stories. You are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket! No RSVP required to attend!
Rain location: BioTech Place Atrium
