Book Release and Art Exhibit, What Color is Goodness?

A poetry book release, What Color is Goodness?, by Emily Morrison. The book features beautiful original oil paintings by Memphis artist Pam McDonnell.  

To celebrate the book's launch, 
Emily and Pam have an event in Memphis on Wednesday, November 9, at Novel Book Store, featuring a book signing as well the original artwork from What Color is Goodness? for viewing and sale.
Inspired by the question of her cartwheeling five-year-old niece, “Emmy, what color is goodness,?" Emily wrote her first poetry book to help readers find goodness in the most unexpected places. What Color is Goodness? is set to come out in November 2022.  The poem explores friendships, vulnerability, mindfulness, gratitude, acceptance, and community--lessons that connect all generations. 
Pam McDonnell was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1969 and has resided in Memphis, Tennessee, since 1996. Her alma mater is the University of Memphis, where she completed her BFA in 2005 and is currently an MFA painting candidate set to finish her studies in the spring of 2023. She combines expressive graphite drawings with thinly layered oil glazes to create work that speaks the language of spirit and connection. McDonnell has been exhibiting her work in the Memphis area since 2014 and has pieces in the public collections of West Cancer Center, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Church Health, and Iberia Bank. Additionally, she has volunteered her time to serve on the board of Arts Memphis and has also served in various capacities on committees within the community to support and further the arts in Memphis.
