Poetic Medicine in the Time of Pandemic: A Collection of Poems from Around the World (Hardcover)
Poetry Has the Power to Heal and Comfort during a Pandemic
After visiting her birth country of China during the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, poet and entrepreneur, Dawn Li, Ph.D., was inspired to organize a group of poets from around the world to write inspirational poems in response to the tragedy.
In Poetic Medicine, poets-young and old-came forward in an international effort to unite humanity in a fight against Covid-19. Hailing from places like Nigeria, Australia, India, the United States, Scotland, and China, these poets expressed their own worries, desires, and dreams in words that we can all relate to.
Dawn Li grew up in Southern China, and studied and worked in Wuhan for six years, where the coronavirus hit first. She is the author of Song of a Lotus Leaf, a memoir in poetry, and holds a doctorate in literature from George Washington University.
