My friend Bonnie Nish launched her very first full-length book of poetry last night. The launch was a huge success and way more than 100 people showed up to celebrate. Bonnie, through her work with Pandora’s Collective and Summer Dream, through the workshops she offers to teens and those in need, to the nights without number that she has emceed Open Mic events — this is a woman with a passion. She has helped so many writers — poets and otherwise — through the years, and her new book [which I devoured whole last night] is just wonderful.
Bonnie wants to take this book on the road. She wants to go on tour, and tours are expensive, so she’s launched an Indie-go-go campaign to help her take her book to San Francisco, Toronto and Calgary…and you can help. If you care about poetry, if you care about a poet who cares about other poets, then this is the campaign for you to support. Bonnie’s won a ton of awards for her work in the writing community, and I would love to see her be able to take her act on the road, and celebrate her Love & Bones in style.
