Join Day Eight, host Regie Cabico and honored guest poets on the roof of The Gantry in Washington, D.C.'s Union Market neighborhood to celebrate the poet R.E.I.L. and her new book, Ashes to Justice.

"Written with a whisper and a hammer" - Kim B Miller, Poet Laureate Prince William County, Virginia

"The sorrow of abuse pulses under these poems. But so does the joy of double-dutch, a grandmother's love, and the truth of rebirth" - Joseph Ross, author of Raising King, and Ache

R.E.I.L. started her poetry career at open mics in the D.C. area and at 16 competed in the Brave New Voices slam in New York City. A poetic performer, visual artist, and arts educator teaching in D.C. schools, R.E.I.L. seeks inspiration from past and present life experiences to help the lives of other unsung souls.

Ashes to Justice traces the authors path of love, abuse, and recovery toward self-love. The book was published by Day Eight with support from HumanitiesDC and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Cover art for the book is (c) Luis Del Valle, used by permission of the artist.
