Word Up Community Bookshop welcomes local author and Washington Heights native Mercedelli Graciano (Mercy G) to the store for an unforgettable evening! Her new book, The Awakening of my Senses, is a compilation of poems, quotes and essays describing the discovery of love and everything that comes with it. In this first book, her hope is to excite something in someone and entice them to navigate through their feelings in a healthy way. Preaching about falling in love, falling apart and regaining strength comes easy for this self-healer. Her goal is to teach people that anything can be done as long as we allow the process of life to guide us. With a sprinkle of self-love and a dash of awareness, Mercedelli Graciano brings us a masterpiece of emotions through her writing.
From the author:
"I would love to hold my book signing party surrounded by the streets that inspired so much of my poetry. Being a Dominican self-published author is one of my greatest accomplishments. I would love to celebrate with my people, como si fuera en la sala de mi casa."
