Our book is a poetry anthology that I co-edited with my friend Annette Gagliardi. Its called Upon Waking. 58 Voices Speaking Out from the Shadow of Abuse. I have five of my poems in the book and I tell my story of abuse and healing through my poetry.
Our book launch was on Saturday, April 6th at Moon Palace books in Minneapolis. It's was very exciting and full of awesome. We spoke to a packed room of 70 amazing people. 13 poets shared their poems and some of them presented their personal poems in front of an audience for the first time. They were so brave and it was so empowering as we laughed and cried together.
Our book is made up of poetry by survivors of abuse, sexual and physical, and it gives survivors a chance to tell their stories through poetry. It is a very powerful book.
