Come out to see Dasha Kelly read with Writing Wrongs at the Method Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
Praise for Almost Crimson:
"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
"Readers cannot help but root for CeCe as she struggles, hiding her pain behind grim determination and a strong habit of just putting one foot in front of another—walking onwards and upwards to new beginnings. Thumbs up to Dasha on this tour de force, coming-of-age novel!"
—Kimberly Graba, librarian, Racine Correctional Institution
