Spotlight: Nikki Giovanni.

http://athena.english.vt.edu/Giovanni/home.html

It's not nikkigiovanni.com--a misfortune--and it's still in construction, but I say, click on this! The site promises to be comprehensive, already boasting Giovanni's curriculum vitae, honorary degrees, selected poetry, children's books, biography and listings of the events she sponsors.

There are more book images to come, as well as a page dedicated to teaching the author's work. It's not easy to find since its housed on the website for Virginia Tech, where she is a Distinguished Professor of English. But despite the trouble, you may find it worth the effort.
