Maya Angelou Recovering at Home After Brief Hospitalization

Poet and author Maya Angelou is recovering at her Winston-Salem home after spending a few days at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center being treated for an undisclosed illness, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

Her physician, Dr. Jeff Williamson, a professor of gerontology and geriatric medicine at Wake Forest Baptist, sent letter to the agency that books Angelou’s speeches, saying that Angelou had undergone a brief hospitalization, was recovering at home and had been directed not to travel for three to four weeks.

As a result, Angelou, 85, canceled an appearance on Thursday at Butler University in Indianapolis as part of its Celebration of Diversity Distinguished Lecture Series, according to the university’s website.

Angelou and Butler University officials said they hope to reschedule her appearance in the fall.
