I can’t wait for you to get your hands on a copy of my latest book: Dreamers Needed. From the website above, you can order copies of my book.
If you want my books at your public library, go to your local library and ask them about me by name or my poetry books, (I’m No Hero), (Counting Waves) & (Dreamers Needed) from their end, they can order the books to keep on their shelves for people to borrow. 🙂
Once my health improves a bit more, I will be scheduling and announcing more book signing and reading events but in the meantime, I stay home and rest. I look forward to reading book reviews from you. 🙏🏼
If you are in the Lower Mainland area anywhere near Vancouver, I would gladly meet you to sell you a copy of my book.
When I start feeling a bit better and my energy return a bit more, I will leave few copies my book at Indigo Chapters in Metrotown/ Burnaby, Renaissance Books in New Westminster, Black Bond Books in Maple Ridge, as well as the public libraries.
I get dizzy and tired doing all that now so I ask you to order it online from the publisher or contact me directly. Once you get my book, plesae take a few moments and send me a book review. I would love to hear from you how my poetry is influencing you.
Also, on YouTube, if you search ( Lozan Yamolky ) you will find a couple of poetry that I managed to record and post. I hope to do more as I start to get better.
From the unceded territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) & xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations —Vancouver BC Canada, Lozan Yamolky humbly begun since 2013 to share with her family, her community then the world, her poetry. Lozan was born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq in 1972. She is of Kurdish descent. After the Desert Storm War of 1991 and the subsequent uprising of the Kurds, she along with her family and million others became refugees stranded on the borders of Iran. After long journey and many trials, she immigrated to Canada in 1995 settling in Vancouver. She is the fifth of eleven children and now the mother of two boys. She works as freelance interpreter and she is the author of two other poetry books I’m No Hero & Counting Waves through: Silver Bow Publishing. :
The book Dreamers Needed is dedicated to her two teenage sons. Lozan believes our troubled world needs dreamers that will rise and change it to a better world for all not for the elite, the greedy, the corrupt and polluters. She believes poetry frees, poetry heals, and poetry can bring peace to our world. Her book is about love and acceptance, about refugees and war-torn lands, about the planet and the call to warrior up, it is about ancient pride, culture, respect, knowledge and ancestors link that continues to flow through our veins and through our spirit and this book is about how memorable you want to be once you are gone.
