Newly published book of poetry to be featured at this year’s Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit on September 29-30.
From poet-author Karen Keller Leet comes a poignant poetry anthology that lets readers know that they are not alone in their sentiments. In her newly released book, Runaway Soul Poetry, she invites everyone to take a glimpse of another gamut of emotions that people don’t often consider and discuss openly.
This collection of touching verses and moving lines allows readers to remember—in a soothing and calming way—a past they’ve tried burying, a mistake they’ve tried keeping, a love they’ve tried forgetting, or a memory they’ve tried hiding. Her words are delivered in a very personal and candid manner that readers will truly feel and experience the sincerity of the author. Some of these poems echo an aching, a hurt, a stirring, and a punch but because they’re expressed beautifully and gently, readers will find a breath of comfort, warmth, and relief in them.
“My gratitude goes to the Lord for bestowing upon me the sweet gift that allows me to put my passion into words. It is my hope that my poetry inspires readers to new ideas that perhaps before they had not considered. It is most important to me that my readers find some comfort in knowing that we all share the same life experiences, that we are not alone in dealing with a multitude of emotions in a chaotic world,” says the author.
This book will be featured at this year’s Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, IL on September 29-30, 2010. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
