Book Signing w/ April Fields, author of A Version of You and Wild Flower
August 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us Sunday, August 29th at 2 pm for a performance and reading by April Fields, author of A Version of You and Wild Flower. A book signing will follow.
‘A Version of You,’ is an introspective adventure that will take the reader upon a journey throughout the course of one year within a young woman’s life on the road. The story is a true tale that speaks with raw, poetic gravity about, not only the endearing beauty of travel but also the unspoken hardships faced when attempting to maintain a sense of personal identity against the world’s ever-changing backdrop.
Wild Flower is not only a thought-provoking book of tantalizing poetry, but it also serves as the sister-piece to April’s self-published memoir, ‘A Version of You.’
April Lee Fields is a self-published author, a shamanic songstress, and an internationally recognized spoken word artist. Performing live readings from her works, ‘A Version of You’ & ‘Wild Flower,’ April takes her audience on an epic Spoken Word journey across continents; from small-town America to hippy communes deep in the Australian Outback, from the linoleum suburbs of her hometown in the UK, to overgrown jungle temples deep in the heart of Asia.
April’s original storytelling performances are set against a melodious instrumental backdrop, provided by her bass guitarist and mandolin player, Elliot Twiggman. There, you will also find the pair seamlessly drifting into an assortment of soulful cover songs that have been carefully paired with each reading, offering their audience a touch of the familiar as well as the foreign. Alongside of Twiggman’s resonantly deep musical offerings, April’s vivid descriptions of both the exotic and the mundane are effortlessly entwined with a soulful observation that will completely transport her listener into a world of pure literary and melodic magic.
Alongside of the unique literary detail that pounces from her pages, the surreal visualisations that pour out of her cheeky British mouth, and her soulful songs that are sure to reverberate you to the very core, the unique & sultry performance of April Lee Fields is unlike anything that has ever been done before.
