Felecia Scott: The LP Collection: Lessons and Praise

Saturday, May 18, 2013, 2 p.m.

Felecia Karen Scott, a born and raised Washingtonian, discovered her love of poetry in 1984 when her sister asked her to recite William Blake's "The Lamb" in an elementary school talent show. In 1988, when in Mrs. Miller's Creative Writing class, she discovered that writing poetry was as enjoyable and rewarding as reading and reciting.

With the publication of her first book of poems, The LP Collection: Lessons and Praise, Ms. Scott is letting the world join her in the love of poetry. Many of her poems are centered around God, family, friends and personal life lessons that have directly and indirectly affected her outlook on life. Poetry for Ms. Scott has served as a positive outlet as well as a vehicle for healing. One of her dreams is to use her poetry to assist with healing the brokenhearted along with continuing to use it as her own personal creative arts therapy. Poems in this collection will indirectly introduce you to Ms. Scott.

Join Ms. Scott in room 209 as she reads selections from her book and answers questions about her work.
