Award winning poet Nancy Shiffrin will be reading from and signing her poetry collection, THE VAST UNKNOWING. "Buckle up. Hold tight! THE VAST UNKNOWING is like riding the rollercoaster. It will plunge you into despair, exhilarate you, shake you to the depths of your being, terrify you, elate, disturb. And leave you weak-kneed, dizzy and delighted that you saw it through to a safe landing. A ride not to be missed. ... words as weapons, words as balm, sometimes words that puzzle, words that arouse...In her poem, "At the Writers' Retreat, Shiffrin quotes Anais Nin, 'There are no writer's blocks, only secrets we are afraid of telling.' Nancy Shiffrin isn't afraid. And no one will remain indifferent to the virtuoso power with which she reveals her secrets." Ricky Rapoport Friesem, Poetica Magazine
