Despite how I terribly feel due to my traumatic brain injury, from the car crash on November 23, 2018, I am determined to launch my third book poetry that I self-published through McNally Robinson.
Social gatherings and prolonged conversations (listening, observing or carrying on a conversation myself) is proving to be challenging still and makes me dizzy, exhausted and even depressed.
A long time family friend and TV personality/ public figure Mr. Shwan Chawshin through Kurdish House in Vancouver planned the full elaborate event of launching my book. He is aware of my conditions and vulnerability so he will accommodate me a the time draws near.
In the meantime, while I prepare for Sunday February 3rd event, I will remain mostly home and try to heal, rest and recover as much as I can to prepare to handle the big day. I will be kind to myself and listen to my body otherwise if I push myself to get better fast, I will suffer setbacks and my healing will take twice as long.
Please be patient with me and do try to come to the event on February 3rd if you can.
Here is the invitation card Kaka Shwan created for the upcoming event.
I will have my previous 2 poetry books on display and for sale as well.
My latest book (Dreamers Needed) is $20.00 and on the day of the event, my previous books (Counting Waves) & ( I’m No Hero) are on sale for $15.00 each.
I hope you can come or at least share the news and help me get the word out. I ship my books worldwide so feel free to order from me or from the publisher. https://www.mcnallyrobinson.com/home
If my conditions did not improve by the time of the event, I may take time to record my poems in advance on a video clip or voice recorder.
