Four Poetry books of
The Survivor Monument Project

 

Book I: Through Darkness and Thorns

Book II: Embrace My Innocence

Book III: To Break the Silence

Book IV: After the Flood

 

Dr. Michael Irving led
sculpting and poetry
workshops to create the
materials of the Child
Abuse Survivor
Monument Project.

The sculpted quilt
squares and poetry of
the workshop
participants became the
resource material of the
project's many activities.

The four art and poetry
books linked to from this
web page tell the story
of: the confrontation with
the angst and legacy of
child abuse; the struggle
to find answers and
understanding; the
difficult journey of
healing; the value and
power of connecting with
others; the movement
into healing and
recovery; the freedoms
and victories that are the
rewards of
perseverance.

These books are
presented here to assist
others with understanding
and healing.

We are seeking a
publisher who would
publish these as art and
poetry books. Contact
Dr. Irving at
mci@irvingstudios.com
