||Rhode Island International Film Festival Short Film Selection
Filmmaker Erica Collins created a 3-minute film based on my poem
"Titles On My Bookshelves" and it was selected for the festival.
"Titles explores every individual's journey to maturity. From a little girl's fear
of the unknown to a young adult's strength to stand up to an authority figure,
the movie captures the full spectrum of emotions that all of us live and learn
from. In a dramatic finale, the heroine's coming of age crossroads are tied
into the titles on her bookshelves."
