Wow! As a fellow (less accomplished) poet, Solli Raphael’s book, “Limelight” is an inspiration! Mr. Raphael is only thirteen, but he is a true artist and poet who uses his voice to incite positive change in his beliefs with those around him. At his age, what he is doing, is so inspiring!
Solli won a Slam Poetry competition hosted at the Sydney Opera House as a pre-teen and now has written his first book for kids (and adults) to teach them about writing, poetry, slam poetry, about having confidence, about the issues that are near and dear to his heart, and it is amazing! What a wonderful collection and story that this young man has. He started learning about slam poetry in the 7th grade, fell in love with it, and is now an emerging voice as a young person to rally others around the causes he cares about most.
I love this book! I would recommend it to all of my poet friends. I would recommend it to all of my parent friends who want to inspire their children. I would recommend it to all of my teacher friends with students of all ages. This book is really that good. Go get a copy and be inspired by this young person with such a powerful voice and immense talent.
