October Reading Blog #1/Blogtober Day 2

I began the month reading L.L. McKinney’s ‘A Dream So Dark’. I’m about halfway through, and I’m really enjoying the book so far! I really appreciate how McKinney expands on the world of Wonderland, and the many eccentric people and creatures Alice encounters along her journey. There’s also lots of tension taking place, and it’s definitely keeping me on edge!



I also read some poetry and prose from Lucille Clifton and Judith Ortiz Cofer. Thanks to the Poets House library in New York City, I had access to unlimited works of poetry. Visiting Poets House brings me back to those regular meetings with my poetry therapy mentor and community. We shared and learned so much with each other!

I hope your reading and writing is off to a promising start this month!
