April is Poetry Month - Federation of Poets Events

Tracy Repchuk here to remind you that April is Poetry Month. Here is a bit of news from one of our members, Najah Shuqair.


The First Poetry Book Launch For A New Writer Benefits Cancer Patients

50% of the proceeds from the sale of this book go toward:
1) Breast Cancer Research
2) Cancer Research
3) Canadian Cancer Society

If you would like me to send you a photo. I can e-mail you one by attaching it to the email, I don't have one right now.

My name is Najah Shuqair. I started taking my writing seriously since 2006. I write poetry, short stories and articles.

I am a cancer survivor. I had Lumpectomy surgery 5 years ago and I had Mastectomy in January, 27, 2009.

I published my first poetry book in November 2008. It called "ENTER MY HEART", Poems For The Soul.

I started the book with a statement:

Poems are nutrition for the soul
Flowers are nutrition for the bees

I am going to launch the book on Sunday, April, 5, 2009 between 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Cost of the Book is $10
It is a free admission, finger food and refreshments are served.
The book can be found at: www.lambtoncounty.com/najahshuqair.html

The Book Launch at the "Kinsmen Club of Sarnia"
656 Lakeshore Road
Sarnia, On.

I love helping others. I thought of a way how can I help bodily and mentally. I found that words do affect the mind. The mind is a machine that gives orders to the body.

If the mind is good, the body becomes good and fights against anything especially cancer.
