Poet Gina Capobianco reads from her new book Conscious Connection
Sunday Dec 3rd @ 3pm
Conscious Connection documents Capobianco’s journey to healing. Her themes have, as the years have passed, become more reflective and insightful. While before she wrote her evocative free verse with passion and ferocity, she now writes with a more mature sense of purpose, intentionally confronting the darkness that continues to periodically encroach on her life.
Many of Capobianco’s best poems are dark, exemplifying the despair and isolation of depression. Yet as the collection and her healing progress, she moves you toward a dawning hope for connection with other people—a hope that becomes reality as Capobianco finds the help and healing she needs.
A powerful, emotionally intense examination of depression, Conscious Connection demonstrates the healing power of the written word. If you, like Capobianco, suffer from depression, you’ll see yourself in her words and realize her final message—the darkness may return, but so does the light.
