A Virtual Evening with Gabbie Hanna
Monday, October 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Books & Books and Miami Book Fair present “An Evening with Gabbie Hanna” discussing Dandelion.
New York Times bestselling author Gabbie Hanna delivers everything from curious musings to gut-wrenching confessionals in her long-awaited sophomore collection of illustrated poetry.
This edition includes a collection of uncomfortably honest personal essays about Gabbie’s childhood and relationships.
In this visually thrilling installment of the inner-workings of Gabbie’s mind, we’re taken on a journey of self-loathing, self-reflection, and ultimately, self-acceptance through deeply metaphorical imagery, chilling twists on child-like rhymes, and popular turns of phrase turned on their heads. Through raw, provocative tidbits, Dandelion explores what it means to struggle with a declining mental health in a world where mental health is both stigmatized and trivialized. The poems range from topics of rage and despair to downright silliness, so if you don’t know whether to laugh or cry, just laugh until you cry.
