I am proud to announce the publication of Heart’s Journey: Selected Poems, 1980-1999 by Nina Serrano. The cover of the book, pictured here on the right (click on it to enlarge), shows my drawings included in the book from my journals of those years. The poems, together with the drawings, offer readers a multi-faceted glimpse into my thought over the last twenty years of the 20th Century. I hope you enjoy it.
Heart’s Journey, published by Estuary Press, is available as an ebook and as a paperback Print on Demand (POD). Heart’s Journey is the second volume of a trilogy of books that presents my poetry written from 1969 to 2012. The trilogy is called Heart Suite. Volume one is Heart Songs, the Collected Poems of Nina Serrano, 1969-1979, Volume three is Heart Strong, Selected Poems, 2000-2012 and available in both ebook and paperback formats.
Here is what Mary Rudge, Poet Laureate of Alameda, California has to say about Heart’s Journey:
“Nina Serrano’s poems center on the great adventure of being a woman. From youthful visionary to ultimate wise woman, Nina’s poems and drawings take you through the intricate passages of life’s mysteries. This intimate journey of the mind and heart is a book to cherish. One thinks of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Che Guevara giving it their blessing. This is an adventure book of life itself, a woman’s life transcribed in strong, courageous, heartfelt poems.”
