Words From the Café: Voices of People in Recovery. This is an exciting and unusual collection of stories and poems written by people in recovery. Every Friday at Seattle’s Recovery Café, in downtown Seattle, people struggling with addiction, mental illness, trauma, and homelessness come together in Anna Bálint’s Safe Place Writing Circle to write and share writing. Here they discover their own unique voices and ways of shaping language to write stories and poems as part of reclaiming their lives. The literary range and breadth of human experience found in this collection flies in the face of prevailing stereotypes of some of the most marginalized members of our society. These are voices that need to be heard.
