Author talk: AWARENI by Lennee Reid - Saturday Sept 9th 3pm

Please join us for a reading of Awareni by celebrated local poet, Lennee Reid.

Lennee Reid is a Creole author, multi media artist, performance poet, activist, healer, and community organizer based in Olympia, Washington. She has opened for Pussy Riot, been featured in Northwest Poetry forum, and was included in "Arising," an installation by Yoko Ono. Awareni is her third book of poetry, and the first published by Last Word Press.

"The poems in this collection are imbued with an energy and awareness of the divinity found in all of us. Reid's poems leap off the page and demand to be sung, to be shouted into the void, in order to dispel those forces gathered all around us that fill our hearts with hate, bigotry, and misogyny. These poems are an invocation, a spell, a talisman."
