TULSA, OK, July 31, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- LISTEN takes you deep into the conscientious of the socially, economically, and culturally challenged. Confronting the communal stigmas of not fitting in, LISTEN is a first person journey into the breaking hearts and poignant lives of those who fail to flourish in today's society. In this collection the author compels us to look at the abused and enslaved. The hopeless and helpless, living in tent cities and sleeping in cars; their stories scrolled ticker tape style across the bottom of our screens; consciously unseen - subconsciously unheard. The author forces us to acknowledge and at times concede to the darkness that masks their faces. Fearing the infinite in ourselves, "Listen" engulfs us in screams that get louder, emotions that clash with Understanding, and a whirlwind of confrontations, economics, and dogmas that marginalize a society of real people, attempting to live real lives.
Rich in enlightenment, yet dark and enticing, Listen is for real people living real lives. Although the authors work trends toward academia, LISTEN is an awakening that shines a light on the portico that separates those who think they "have" from those who are sure they "have not". In this special edition of LISTEN, the author has included consigned pieces that bring her amazing talents full circle. Coupled with the author's photography and design, LISTEN has something for the reader in all of us.
Author of "ONE DAY; Life, Love and Controversy in Middle America", "EMBRACE", and a contributor to "CANDY", edited by Dale Winslow and Erin Badough, Shirley remains an advocate for peace, freedom, and equality. The author uses a quote from John O'Donohue to summarize the premise of this collection.
