Lincoln High School Celebrates National Poetry Month by Hosting Young Author Davina Ferreira

National Poetry Month was created by the Academy of American Poets in 1996
April 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, California - Lincoln High school students will have a rare opportunity to meet acclaimed young author Davina Ferreira as part of the celebration of National Poetry Month. Ferreira’s book, “Take Me With You” (Llévame Contigo) is a collection of short stories and poems in a bilingual format.  The event takes place on Friday, April 15, 2011 at 8:00 am.  

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April. Publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events in schools and communities across the United States.  

Ferreira, a graduate of the Royal Academy of Drama in London was also a student of Sir Ben Kingsley.  His mentoring proved powerful and instrumental in the creation of her book- a collection of poetry, short stories and a one-act play.

“I wrote Take Me With You for anyone who has loved, longed for love or lost in love.  I wrote it in a simple language that could reach people at all levels of society.  Reading and writing heal the spirit.  It is a way to escape the mundane and reach new and exciting worlds” said Ferreira in a recent interview.  

Lincoln High School Library is located at 3501 North Broadway in Los Angeles.  For book signings please contact Espada PR.
