A Performance in Poetry Presentation - The Room

Readings from The Room – A journey through Depression

Have you been to a poetry book launch? Can be quite boring, can’t it? In my presentations, I will attempt to entertain as well as present, in the hopes of sharing not only the words upon the page, but the feelings and emotions coming from the heart. These presentations, as well as the content of my books, present a continuous story line in prose and poetry. They focus on a particular theme and try to give insights into the emotions and feelings behind the actions and behaviors of people struggling through major issues of the body and the mind. These are fifty minute presentations followed by a question and answer period.
