Schereeya: Prayers & Pixies Book Release Party
Join us for a special event, celebrating the release of Pittsburgh author Schereeya’s poetry book “Prayers & Pixies:” a collection of poems exploring identity, nature, and our connection to the mysteries of the universe. Schereeya will be performing a live poetry reading and copies will be available for purchase.
“The poems in this collection that were not commissioned were my true and sincere prayers direct from my prayer journal. 2019-2021 have been difficult years for me in deep, incalculable ways. Every single one of these poems helped me make a bit of sense of the pain, grief, and search for hope and joy that I have been experiencing. I hope they can in some small way do the same for you.”
-from the introduction of Prayers & Pixies
Start Time: 6PM
