This May’s reading brings feature poet Leeah Vickers and guest host Dave Wright to Poetry in the Brew. Both are clear voices with deep roots in our literary community.
May Feature Leeah Vickers
Poet and storyteller Leeah Vickers thrives on painting tapestries with words—inspirational stories and perceptions from life’s ever-eventful journey. Her book Free to Fly (available around Nashville, on Amazon, and at her performances) is a peek into the soul of a freed spirit spreading her wings and embracing the tattered yet beautiful world around her. Love and hope is a constant message at the heart of her collection. Along with writing, she teaches 6th grade Literacy and loves to watch ridiculous 80’s movies with her boyfriend and pup at home. Leeah is a growing voice that SOULY desires for others to find their own and celebrate it. For others to be not afraid of their own sound. For others to speak. Because they were meant to.
