Sherri’s newest poetry book is entitled, Reflections. Reflections was written during quarantine, travels cut short from COVID-19 and from vulnerable parts of her heart with words that were sometimes better left unsaid but spilled out anyhow. Reflections is divided into three parts: Plague Poetry, Journeys and Heartbreaks. The book also includes many of Sherri’s photographs. Some of the topics deal with domestic violence, genocide and family dynamics. Ashley Blanz assisted with editing and formatting.
Sherri’s first book of poetry is Matryoshka Rising, Poetic Briefs. The poems in Matryoshka Rising can sting and please our senses. They are inspired by 5 a.m. silences, in between spaces and injustice. They capture a fleeting moment, a snapshot of an emotion. The book is divided into five parts: New York City, Going Global, Human Rights, Love & Pain, and Words. Meagan Jennett provided editorial and formatting assistance.
