Maya Angelou is Coming to Houston!

This is more than a special treat DISHIES! According to my inside sources, Dr. Angelou is not going to be speaking in public for much longer so this may actually be your last opportunity to see her in person.

Thanks to Scott Brogan and The Brilliant Lecture Series Maya Angelou will be in Houston Thursday September 22, 2010 at St. Paul's Methodist Church Downtown at 7 pm. All of the VIP tickets are sold out and there are less than 100 of the regular seating tickets left so purchase yours now! You really don't want to miss out on this opportunity! It really, honestly is ONCE IN A LIFE TIME!


Dr. Maya Angelou is a remarkable Renaissance woman who is hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary literature. As a poet, educator, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer and director, she continues to travel the world, spreading her legendary wisdom

See you there, DISHIES!

 Enjoy this little moment of Texas music by one of DISH'S favorite musicians, Ruthie Foster who took this poem, Phenomenal Woman, by Dr. Maya Angelou and put it to music. Dr. Angelou personally sent Ruthie flowers after hearing the performance.
