Poetry reading honoring the release of the chapbook box set

Dear Friends, For the last few months I have been doing poetry readings and sharing my poems from my BIRD FROM AFRICA chapbook, in anticipation of this month, when the box set of 8 chapbooks would be officially released. Well, it’s here and it’s my pleasure to do a reading today to honor it’s release.

Join me here and tune in for a reading of poetry from my chapbook and from other amazing chapbooks in the series, as well. I am so extra thrilled and super excited about this set of chapbooks. It’s honestly one of the most beautiful and creative things I have seen in my lifetime. Being a part of it is such a great encouragement to me, as I work hard to forge ahead and grow and evolve in my artistic work.

I am eager to continue sharing my poems through poetry readings and celebrating this wonderful project which brings African poetry to a wider audience.

My reading on Wednesday, April 29th, will be at 1pm California time. Hope to see you there and please share with others. ❤
