About the Event
How better to get to know a person than read their innermost thoughts? Meet Amy Hsuan Chiu, poet, artist, designer, polyglot and bunny doll collector. She turns her daily emotions into poetry to be shared with others, displays her artwork at shows around town, speaks four languages (and is learning a fifth), and refuses to grow up. Chiu loves reminiscing about her childhood memories in Hawaii and staying up all night writing — or, as she puts it, being "swallowed up by the written words." In her first book, REBORN, Chiu explores the merging of darkness vs. light and reality vs. dream. Graduating from the University of Washington with degrees in Creative Writing and Visual Arts, Ms. Chiu has now turned attention to travel; seeking international inspiration.
Amy Hsuan Chiu wrote REBORN: To Heal. To Believe. To Love. — an invitation to accompany her on her healing journey as she reminds readers that they are not alone. This collection of poems is in everyday language and is designed to help a person understand one's inner soul for the first time. By dividing the book into parts with specific themes, Chiu deals with complex emotions, unresolved relationships, and overlooked human matters that she brings to the forefront.
The book is broken up into five parts:
- “Embrace Moments of Darkness" discusses regret, pain, and challenges
- “Let the Light Peek Through" is about starting over; a return to innocence
- “Say No Sometimes, Be Kind All Times" Chiu urges her readers to be their true selves
- “Fight Like a Warrior" is a boost for anyone who may be getting tired of pretending
- and "Not the End" which you will have to discover on your own.
Chiu's book of poetry is a gift to herself, but also a gift waiting to be opened...by you.
