The Official Site of Kobina Wright

She Does It All
Many of you may remember how I sung the praises of Kobina Elaine Wright last fall when she launched her blog as a first step to blessing the world with the words of her hypnotic pen.

What many of you may not know is that the smattering of verse she rationed out on that blog where just the tip of her artistic iceberg.

In the months since, she's completely sold out her first volume of poetry, "Growth Spurt".

She's continued to expand her original language, Anibo, to a vocabulary of well over a thousand words.

She's putting the finishing touches on a second volume of poetry, dedicated to the memory of the Rwandan genocide, due out today.

She's established an online gallery for her paintings at her newly cristened website,

AND, in addition to finishing her first feature script and outlining a second, she's hosting and performing for her very own spoken word event, tonight, May 19th, at Shelly’s Courthouse Bistro in Santa Ana, starting at 7:30.

I don't know about y'all, but I'm exhausted.

But I'll still be in Santa Ana for her show tonight. If you're in town, you should join me. And tell her I sent you.

Oh, and buy Growth Spurt AND the Rwanda book. It's well, well worth it.
