About the Book

Street Corner Majesty is the title of David Harris' first published book of poetry. This book is about a few years of David's life and how he tells his story through poetry. David says the most interesting years of his life started in the Winter of 2001 when he found himself homeless on the streets of Washington, D.C., cold, hungry and scared.

After a few weeks on the streets, David discovered the creative writing group at Miriam's Kitchen, a soup kitchen that serves breakfast to the hungry and homeless in D.C. The group provided David with a network of friends, who were also homeless and wrote poetry. David was finding that poetry gave him a way to express his feelings and experiences on the streets.

Street Corner Majesty is being published by AuthorHouse with the financial support of The Pilgrimage. The Pilgrimage considers David it's "Poet-in-Residence." David's book should be available in late Spring, 2009. The book will be able to be purchased on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Borders, and, of course, from David and The Pilgrimage.
