Dog Ear Publishing releases “Tribute To Sam Steward” by Oeishik.

a beautiful amalgam of poetry, prose, and photography, all to the purpose of creating a neverending conversation with Samuel M. Steward

CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 27, 2012

Author Oeishik’s deep interest in civil rights and gay history fueled this project, a fascinating dialogue between himself and the infamous homosexual scholar and artist Samuel M. Steward. During the “active creative process,” Oeishik opened his work up to the public free of cost on its namesake website, creating a give and take with his readers that deeply influenced the nature of the work. Through the comments of the readers, the author realized that humanity is, in fact, inherently connected on a deep level.

Tribute to Sam Steward is a heartfelt outpouring of one man’s experiences through the lens of his own sexuality and his immigration tale. Author Oeishik arrived in America in his teens, and his thirst for knowledge led him to the University of Illinois, where he studied American History and later to law school. Oeishik’s homosexuality, immigrant status, and his dyslexia inform his world view, and fuel his passion for gay history and civil rights issues.
