It’s with great gratitude and joy to see my debut poetic memoir launch tomorrow on Amazon. The Zoom launch party invite is included in my publisher’s post here. I hope you can attend. It would mean the world to me.
My poems are heartfelt and revealing, so I feel vulnerable. However, the support I’m getting will help me read the poems tomorrow without choking.
This book is dedicated to my mother, who died on April 3, 2016. I was her main caregiver as she navigated the progression of Alzheimer’s. Poetry helped me to excavate the layers of grief I held as I cared for her. Despite the healing that blessed me, now that the book is public, I feel a new layer of grief weeping and a great deal of gratitude as the reviews roll in.
Please read Ingrid’s post about the launch details. Thank you all for your love and support!
