Dasha Kelly makes a stop in Cleveland to read from her new novel, Almost Crimson, at Mac's Backs with local poet/activist Erin Elizabeth Wehrenberg.
Praise for Almost Crimson:
"Almost Crimson is what happens when a storyteller with the deft skills of a glassblower takes something as normal as words and transforms them into intricate works of art. Dasha Kelly has spun a vivid and timeless treasure, as only few writers can do."
—Freddie Gutierrez, screenwriter for MGM, Nickelodeon and Warner Brothers
"This book drew me in with increasing power. I couldn't put it down. It's a story of survival and redemption, offering a spark of hope and poetic justice for all the kids that raise themselves from neglect and isolation, and those who dare to reach out with encouragement and generosity. Dasha enchants and ensnares the reader with wry wit, lush imagery and measured cadence of a true storyteller."
—Asia Freeman, Executive/Artistic Director of Alaska's award-winning Bunnell Street Art Center
