"Silhouette" by Nancy Viera Reading & Signing

Nancy Viera, author of The Grief and the Happiness, was at West Side Books on December 12th at 7:30 pm to read from and sign copies of her newest poetry book, Silhouette!


In its lyrical prose and empathetic poetry, Nancy Viera is many people. She is the lover who has left her heart in another country. She is the mountain, where flowers grow, freeze, die, but find a way to bloom again. She is the smell of a grandmother’s cottage, the pain of a childhood memory, the brush of a curl that can’t fit into straight lines. She is the rough hands of a mother, the fire of romance lost in a dream, the silhouette of tiny jars that catch our feelings when “we sin, we love, we move on.”

​Beautifully crafted, each poem is delivered with rawness and grace.

In this memoir, Nancy Viera tells her story of resilience, healing, and moving forward with grief in one hand, and happiness in the other. Her son's father passed away unexpectedly in 2016 at age 33. He had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression years before that, as a result of four years in a war zone.
