The Unframed Window, a film by Nate Shepard finds crowd funding and 20 Desperate Poems and One Love Song by Angeles Hernandez acquired by library

Hi, Brian.
Could you please share this information about my son Nate’s film and my book  with your readers. Thank you very much!

The Unframed Window – A Short Film For Autism Awareness (Based On A True Story)
The Unframed Window is a film by Nate Shepherd that aims to break the stigma associated with autism.  It is based on the true story of a local artist who has autism and finds his way through painting. The film will be submitted to film festivals and screened in different cities around Canada to raise awareness about the potential of those with autism, but we need help in promoting it. 
Here is a link to the Indiegogo campaign where you can read more here.
Please help us #BreakTheAutismStigma and share this campaign with your friends and family!

My first poetry anthology, 20 Poemas Desesperados y Una Cancion de Amor / 20 Desperate Poems and One Love Song has been added to the Canadian Poetry Collection at the Mississauga Central Library, Arts and History Department! 
You can find it on the shelves here.
The collection brings to light the story of a young adolescent woman and relates the excitement and anxiety that first love brings and the anguish that is suffered when it is lost.  The collection compiles three parts, and all the poems intertwine and unveil the story.  The anthology is a bilingual book, written in Spanish and English.  
Here’s an excerpt from a review:
 "If you have an appreciation and passion for reading well-written pieces of literature, then you will be buzzing with enthusiasm and excitement once you read this book in the comfort of your home -- or anywhere really. Cheers." - Mark Bartolome

Thank you very much,
Angeles F. Hernandez
and Nate Shepherd
