Lives of Poetry
In this second edition of collected memoirs, learners from the YMCA Education and Technology Center invite readers to glimpse the worlds they inhabit and the experiences they carry. They reveal their aspirations and commitments, and the strength through which they survive. Lives of Poetry tells of growing up labeled – poor, different, sick, addict, teen mom, drop-out – and claims the power to tell a more unique and personal truth. Please join us to hear these stories from the writers themselves and to celebrate the courage and endurance written on every page.
