Tuesday, March 6 6-7:30PM Join us with Cleo Wade in a conversation on Creativity & Radical Self Love with Stevona Elem-Rogers (Founder of Black Women Are for Grownups) and Armina Mussa (Creative Director of Saint Heron), discussing Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom for a Better Life. Cleo will sign books following the discussion. Rupi Kaur meets Chicken Soup for the Soul in this powerful mix of poetry and spiritual advice from artist, poet, and storyteller Cleo Wade, who has been named by Marie Claire as one of the 50 Most Influential Women in the country and crowned by New York Magazine as the Millennial Oprah. A potent mix of poetry, mantras, affirmations and inspirational advice that is relatable, practical, and digestible, Cleo Wade reminds us why Fast Company named her one of the country’s 100 most creative people. In the summer of 2016, Cleo Wade created the “ARE YOU OK” project, a public booth for free peaceful and loving conversation at the Hester Street Fair in New York City. Heart Talk is both an extension and reflection of this idea. It is not only a conversation with the reader, but also a conversation with Wade herself. Her wisdom applies to micro and macro problems, to the general and specific, to the romantic and the platonic. Arguing that self-love is the seed that gives form to transformative love and that optimism is both a choice and the antidote to despair, Heart Talk is timely and necessary. This book is available in hardcover ($23.99) and paperback ($17.99). If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books. Event date: Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm Event address: Garden District Book Shop 2727 Prytania Street New Orleans, LA 70130
