Author’s poetry book to be featured at one of the most prestigious book exhibits

Readers can now look into author Dorris F. Dock’s innermost thoughts as she presents, through Xlibris, Echoes from The Bayou, a fascinating poetry anthology. Available in online bookstores since March 27, 2010, this collection touches on topics from the most mundane to the most ethereal.

Within its pages, readers will hear the expressions of a retired teacher who is trying to reinvent herself through Christ Jesus in a world she vaguely knew. Dispersed between the poems “The Rain” and “God’s Abiding Love” are poems such as “Life”, “In My Despair”, “The Masses”, and “Remembering Dad”.

The writing of these poems were also very therapeutic in helping the author dispel many doubts and fears that often overwhelmed her during trying times in her life. “Writing about experiences that once brought me grief now gives me joy because I now know the God of all comfort brought me through many distressful situations,” Dock shares.

Through these heartfelt poems that flowed from the tip of the author’s pen, she hopes to inspire her readers as much as they have inspired her through life.

This book will be featured at this year’s London Book Exhibit in London, England, on April 11 to 13, 2011. For more information on this book, log on to
