How Poetry Saved My Life

Where the words end and my body begins

Amber Dawn: Winnipeg reading at McNally Robinson, March 5 (Mar 2016)

Amber Dawn reads at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg on March 5.

Can poetry disrupt the dominant narrative? Can poetry be a form of resistance? Can poetry help us heal ourselves and our communities? Author Amber Dawn will read from her hybrid poetry memoir How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler’s Memoir and her newest poetry collection Where the words end and my body begins as texts to explore poetry as an activist and healing tool.
