Poetry 2Life Slam & Embracing Ebook Release Party

Julisa’s Bar and Lounge in Harlem was a beautiful place to be this past Saturday evening. D.D. Wright,  along with very creative and talented poets, friends and readers of her book celebrated, the release of her sophomore book, Embracing : A Poetic Perspective. As a way to kick off the celebrating, poets from various places performed poems that they selected from her first book Poetry 2Life: Youth. Struggle. Love.
To be in the presence of poets, reading poems with emotions similar to those D.D. Wright wrote the poems with was simply amazing. Julisa’s was crowded, happy hour was in full effect and love inhabited the event.
