If you're looking for something new and different,why not consider the book Shadow Sounds and/or Fading Into Focus for your group.The poetry is highly accessible and deals with aspects of the human condition and the natural world. Shadow Sounds is a more eclectic collection and Fading Into Focus deals with the history of family relationships, aging parents and Alzheimer's Disease. Fading Into Focus deals with a serious subject as an opportunity of love, forgiveness and deep self-discovery. It's fun to add the element of entertainment that comes with a live reading of new poems as well as selected ones from these books. An engaging discussion will surely be sparked by one of the myriad of topics covered or by questions around the creative process.Take a chance on poetry and you'll be pleasantly surprised!
