Connie’s launch for Unspoken was yesterday in the drawing room at our “office”, the UWCV Hycroft House. I had obviously read through the collection countless times but to hear her poetry read brought her work to another level of meaning. Tears, yes.
To be a part of this project has been such a privilege. And after hearing how deeply people have been impacted by her work (many of whom share Connie’s heritage), it is all the more fulfilling.
