It’s the third episode of Required Reading with Tom and Stella! This podcast, which is hosted by Tom Panarese (Pop Culture Affidavit, In Country, Taking Flight) and Stella (Batgirl to Oracle: A Barbara Gordon Podcast, The Batman Universe) is two teachers talking about literature. Each episode, we will be taking a look at a single work, analyzing it, criticizing it and deciding if it’s worth its place in the canon.
This time out, we take a look at Maya Angelou’s landmark memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, which explores her childhood and adolesence in Arkansas and in other parts of the South and Midwest during the 1930s-1950s.
