M.S. Yousafzai's Poetry Collection to be Featured at Michigan Reading Association Conference
M.S. Yousafzai's new poetry collection, "The Chasing Glance: The Expression Garden" (published by AuthorHouse), will be featured this year at the 2014 Michigan Reading Association's conference.
The Michigan Reading Association's conference is held annually and covers many facets of the literature and publishing world. Some guest speakers to be featured at this year's conference are: RJ Palacio, Cris Tovani and Sharon Draper.
Drawing solely from the things he sees and knows, Yousafzai believes his poetry will be relatable for many readers, as it is composed of elements drawn from daily life. He also believes his poetry will help heal readers who deal with problems similar to those present in the collection: loss of love, depression and finding faith.
An excerpt from the poem, "Holy Father Adam" in "The Chasing Glance":
"Blessed entity, the first human was descended to the earth.
He was sixty feet tall, with the mercy of God since his birth.
His birth without parents, from this clay increases my mirth.
Why we all have forgotten his life an example of best worth."
"The Chasing Glance"
