Whether you are an avid poetry reader or a fan of spoken word poetry, there is something to be said for a poet’s writing style that transcends the limits of confined paper pages and still delivers passion on the Open-Mic stage. This can surely be said of one new poet Mikaylah Simone and her book of poetry “My Manufactured English”. Leaving her Texas beginnings, New York soon became the ideal stage for her "one-woman show" of life. From the "Lone Star" (unfashionably dressed in black skin), to the "Big Apple" where black is "vogue" on the Harlem runway. Mikaylah's poetry communicates consciousness and passion out of her strong desire to transform thoughts and experiences into art. The work incased between the covers of this book promise to be an interesting and insightful read that touch upon variable worldly concerns.

Ms. Simone will be reading from her debut book, “My Manufactured English: A Book of Poetry”, and sharing her experiences as a self-published author in an intimate question and answer session. (For Media Interviews contact HMG 708-596-9408 or pr@bahiyahwomanmagazine.com)

Also enjoy sounds provided by Chicago’s own jazz collective, D-Erania. She's been called the "goddess of sound", understandably so, EverLove Music recording artist D-Erania not only plays saxophone, piano and sings; her music captivates audiences to the point of being nearly hypnotized. Attendees will enjoy soulful jazz with selections from her debut CD, Offerings of Love.
