3rd Thursday with Miriam Wagoner
In support of the National Domestic Violence Awareness month, our October 3rd Thursday Event Author is Domestic Violence survivor and Author of the book, A Poem Book From My Kaasei Nook To The World, Miriam Wagoner.
Wagoner was born in the Philippines. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from University of the Visayas, Cum Laude. She has made Juneau, Alaska her home since 2000. She is the first transitioning survivor to live in Kaasei, the transitional housing of Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies (AWARE), which opened in 2015.
Her poetry appeared in Capital City Weekly, Southeast Alaska’s largest distributed community paper. This is her first book featuring the poems she wrote while living in Kaasei, thus, the title, “A Poem Book From My Kaasei Nook To The World.” She is currently writing her Memoir.
“Wearing those shoes made me write. I dedicate my poems, Wounded Eagle’s Nest and Comforted to all domestic violence victims and survivors around the world.”
Come one, come all to her book signing and public reading event happening here at Hearthside Books. Wear something purple this day to show your support to the domestic violence victims and survivors.
