PRLog - Dec. 4, 2012 - The Deer Park compound in Mill Valley has invited author Rose Gordy to a poetry reading and book signing event on Tuesday December 4, 2012. In addition to reading poetry from her latest book, "Stairs to the Attic: A Collection of Poems", Rose Gordy will be signing copies of her four books, including "The Ladies Baltimore: Mothers and Daughters Alone and Together," "Into the Green Unknown," and "Unsettled Lives: A Collection of Short Stories." For more info on Rose Gordy and her books, visit http://www.Rosewords.com (http://rosewords.com/).

The poetry reading starts at 9pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Author and dream counselor Rose Gordy spent thirteen years of her early life as a nun effectively cut off from the world. In spite of the conditions within the Church, she managed to leave and make a life for herself including getting married and having three sons. Through her experiences in the convent as well as decades of teaching in the classroom, she has woven compelling stories and poems honoring the lives lost and changed forever by adversity. For more information about Rose and Rosewords Books, please visit http://www.Rosewords.com.

Her latest book, "Stairs to the Attic," is a collection of poetry down to earth yet otherworldly, a book which instinctually eschews the conventional. Amidst the hundreds of little adventures within these pages, readers will no doubt find themselves transported to places and feelings familiar and fantastic. One could watch TV but nothing captures an experience like the timeless rhythmical synergy of song & speech which Humans call Poetry.

The poem which gives this book its title, Stairs to the Attic, paints a picture of youth restrained but always one step away from the truth. Will a group of former nuns find out the secret their convent held from them? What could possibly happen when these liberated women return decades later full of latent curiosity? Other poems delve into the dreamscape, the synchronistic, the blood bonds, the shadow memories, the earthiness, the maternal instincts, the harkening forward and the eyeful. This updated and expanded second edition is filled with 42 original photographs and over 150 poems and will break the proverbial mold.

Rose Gordy is also a national and state workshop facilitator, speech coach, veteran secondary English teacher, dream counselor, and published poet, essayist and short story writer. She earned a Master’s Degree in English and French from the University of Notre Dame and has been writing and teaching for most of her life.

If you cannot make it to this special event, all of Rose's books are available in paperback and eBook formats at http://www.Rosewords.com. On her website, there are also links to her Kindle Store, her Facebook page, and her Twitter page.
