“My interest is to inspire people however possible, and most importantly fill their hearts with a smile!”

The recently-concluded L.A. Times Festival of Books exhibited plenty of new poetry collections that painted vivid, colorful reflections of their authors’ lives. For some, however, these collections were made through years of writing about personal experiences. Shereema Dumas is one new author with such a collection.

Dumas had graduated with a major in elementary education, and it was in education that she spent the most time in her career. However, that didn’t stop her from regularly penning verses, rhymes, and sonnets about what she witnessed day in and out. Last year, she decided to put it all together under the title “Poetry for the Spirit.”

The collection is arranged in alphabetical order, but there are also dates that can help readers put a chronological order to the events each poem alludes to. Visitors to the L.A. Times Festival of Books all had a chance to check out her life’s work at the exhibit of ReadersMagnet, a self-publishing and book marketing company.

From the celebration of new family members to the excitement of starting a new job, “Poetry for the Spirit” commemorates the highs and lows of Dumas’ life. She also shares a lot of insightful wisdom born from her encounters with women, men and even a few poetic criticisms of how modern American society treats the human race particularly women.

Overall, it’s certainly another great book that festival-goers and poetry aficionados can check for examples of sharing one’s life through poetry.

Shereema Dumas’ “Poetry for the Spirit” is currently available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Updates on the author’s future publications are also available on her website at
