Released in Time for National Poetry Month
Blue Bird, by author Magda Ayuk, is officially released. A book of poetry and prose, it is both a political statement and a spiritual journey for people. It is about self-love and healing. It bravely explores the beautiful and the ugly side of humanity. Themes of gender, race, love all are part of this book.
The book is described as an open invite for people to be unapologetic about who they are. As people bloom, they can find peace in being rebellious. Each piece within the book challenges readers and makes them think about what it means to be a woman, a man, or an other, through their own self-discovery.
The author promotes self-love because she feels it is the way to disassociate oneself from the world’s perception of them. As a Canadian, Cameroonian and an expat who currently resides in South Korea, being an “other” is familiar to her.
“I have years of experience in this area. I know how the world around me receives me and the stereotypes they have about me upon first glance. Living in Asia on and off since 2014 definitely drove that point home,” Magda says. Click here to find Blue Bird on Amazon.
