I’m so thrilled and excited to share this wonderful news with all of you. Today I did my first poetry reading in my local community of  Jersey City writers. My poemSurvivor” was of the 10 finalists which got selected in the “Survival is insufficient” series hosted by the Jersey City writers and Jersey City Arts and Culture. So thankful to Co-Chair Rachel Poy for giving me the opportunity.

Inspired by the NEA’s Big Read selection Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, Jersey City Writers celebrated the triumph of the human spirit over the disaster.

The event was hosted in the Historic Apple Treehouse. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 16, 2006.

Looking forward to many more.

Happy blogging!
