Softening Time– Reading & Signing with Elena Brower

May 17, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MDT


Join poet, Elena Brower, as she reads and signs copies of her new book, Softening Time!


About the Book

Softening Time is both autobiography and self-help, poetry and inspiration. Drawing on events in her own life, particularly her experiences as a mother, daughter, sister, and friend, Brower writes poignantly on themes of love, loss, healing, and rebirth.
Punctuating her work with themed quotations from a wide variety of celebrated writers and thinkers, Brower guides the reader along an intimate journey of both deepening and “softening” self-awareness.
