Poetry Reading hosted by James Aaron Snow

Westobou Gallery :: October 5 :: 12-2:30 PM

Poetry serves as platform, magnification, and realization of this great juxtapose that forms our reality. Often one thinks of death solely as the loss of a person or pet. We might overlook the end of a relationship or moving to another city. Life too is not just a beginning, but can be found in hopes and dreams held within. All of this becomes richer and more empowered through poetry, especially read aloud and expounded upon through dialogue. Of such will be this gathering.

Leah TheActivistArtist is a national recording artist with a passion for poetry. She obtained her degree in English/ Creative Writing from Augusta University and has released two collections of poetry, Milledgeville Uncensored and (...Pleroma), and a full length album, Fire2Feelings. Her poetry has been published in Sandhills Magazine, Yell Magazine, the Bell Ringer, the Poetry Diversified 2015 Anthology, and she has ghost-written poems for various authors.
