Sara Jane Boyers & Shana Nys Dambrot on "Life Doesn't Frighten Me" at Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

Saturday, July 21, from 3-5PM, Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles and Abrams Books invite you to join Sara Jane Boyers in discussion with Shana Nys Dambrot for a reading and discussion in celebration of the 25th Anniversary edition of Life Doesn't Frighten Me, pairing the words of Maya Angelou with artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Sara Jane Boyers & Shana Nys Dambrot on "Life Doesn't Frighten Me" at Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles

Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesn't frighten me at all


Maya Angelou's brave, defiant poem celebrates the courage within each of us, young and old. From the scary thought of panthers in the park to the unsettling scene of a new classroom, fearsome images are summoned and dispelled by the power of faith in ourselves.

Angelou's strong words are matched by the daring vision of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose childlike style reveals the powerful emotions and fanciful imaginings of childhood. Together, Angelou's words and Basquiat's paintings create a place where every child, indeed every person, may experience his or her own fearlessness.

Celebrating it's successful 25 years in print, this brilliant introduction to poetry and contemporary art features brief, updated biographies of Angelou and Basquiat, an afterword from the editor, and a fresh new look. A selected bibliography of Angelou's books and a selected museum listing of Basquiat's works open the door to further inspiration through the fine arts.

Copies of Life Doesn't Frighten Me will be available in-store on the day of the event and signed copies are available to pre-order with free shipping in the U.S. Email the Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles Bookstore at bookshw-la@artbook.com to pre-order!
