Everyone Has a Voice

The Brockton Library Poetry Series "Everyone has a voice" will feature Rushell Frazier and Nicole Rocci.  There will also be an open mike.  

Ms. Frazier is the president of the Worcester County Poetry Association and the art editor for the Worcester Review. Her latest chapbook, Breakup Sauce, is published by Doublebunny Press. 

Ms. Rocci states "When I was in eighth grade, I performed poems I wrote at my talent show and graduation. From then on, I decided that I wanted to perform more of my work. I write poetry because it helps me say the things that are hard for me to communicate in another form."

The reunited siblings soon find themselves in an uneasy alliance to take down the elusive Balthazar Bratt,

a former 1980s child star who seeks revenge against the world.
