Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? I have some exciting news to share with you all. Leisly Roman has a new book out. And I’m doing a post for her book release here on the blog! This spotlight is also for Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month; where I feature authors with Latinx and/or Hispanic backgrounds.
Leisly Ann Roman’s “Living in Phases,” a bilingual debut poetry collection, highlights, or rather normalizes, the ups and the downs, the phases, we all go through in this lifetime. Pain and joy. Love and loss. Grief and strength. Doubt and pride. We live in polarities, we exist in countless phases. Embedded with themes ranging from mental health and cultural expectations, to healing and personal growth, and through the lens of the ever-changing phases of the moon, Roman invites you on a poetic exploration as she reflects upon her own past and current phases, and all that has been learned, or unlearned, as a result. It is true, the moon shines differently for us all – nevertheless, you are never alone in any of your phases.
