New Book of Poetry from Local Author

When: Thursday, May 25, 2017

 

Between 2016 & 2017 I spilled onto pages all the joys, pains, successes and failures I experienced. I wrote about letting go of stale love and picking up new love. I wrote about depressive states and suicidal thoughts. I wrote about dreams of becoming a bigger, lighter version of myself and becoming a mother. I spilled it all. My first book of poetry, Reflections, is available at Amazon.com. Read a sample and if resonates with your soul, buy a copy. https://www.amazon.com/Reflections-Day-Dream-Alston/dp/1542838274/
