The book launch of one of our members Victoria Williams, was a thoroughly magical and inspirational event. Mrs Williams’ book of poetry is interwoven with her spiritual beliefs, culture and motivational words.
It was an evening of readings, warmth and laughter; a culmination of Vicki’s undeniably hard work. I was particularly pleased to attend because I have seen Vicki’s drive and determination in creating poetry and sharing it with a wider audience. One of my favourite poems is, “Vanity Saith The Preacher,”
Vicki summed up the launch by stating:
“Don’t fear failure so much so that you refuse to try (as I had many mishaps from manuscripts to printing) but I never gave up trying. Along life’s way, when one fails to be victorious you must not procrastinate. Just get up and try again. I can say like Maya Angelou – I know why the caged bird sings.”
We wish Vicky every success
