Reknowned Poet E. Ethelbert Miller Reads His Poem, “Words”

We have a new project to collect video performances of contributors, reading their contributions to Voices of the Grieving Heart.

The first video comes from E. Ethelbert Miller, who reads his poem, Words. Ethelbert is a renowned writer and literary activist whose poetry has been translated into nearly a dozen languages. He is a two-time Fulbright Senior Specialist Program Fellow to Israel and has taught at several universities. He also hosts a weekly radio show in the Washington, DC area. His 2005 poem honoring HIV/AIDS caregivers, We Embrace, is engraved on the pavement surrounding a circular bench outside the Dupont Circle Metro station in Washington, DC. I’m grateful to him for his support of this project.


Did You Miss the Book Launch?

We have a received a LOT of great feedback about the book launch. One attendee, someone who doesn’t normally write poetry, was even inspired to write her own poem about grieving the death of her husband.

If you missed the live event, you can watch it right here.
