Meeting: The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

Join Na'Tosha De'Von to discuss her new book of poetry!

Na'Tosha De'Von's inaugural book of poetry highlights Black girl joy, trauma, love and loss. With emphasis on healing, she takes the reader on a journey of true vulnerability and self exposure. Through the perspective of the Black female lens, Na'Tosha opens the door to challenging conversations while wrapping her audience in empathy and love. "Quiet As It's Kept" is a collection of poetry that centers breaking through the norm of pressured silence to the peace of full recovery. 

Na’Tosha De’Von is an MFA actor from the University of Arkansas and published poet who holds a Bachelor's degree in Speech Communication & Theatre from Jackson State University. She is originally from Chicago, IL and was raised in Mississippi. She believes the purpose of her art is to expose and heal. One cannot heal the parts that are broken if they do not see them. The exposure, while brutal, is a necessary madness. She would like to think the first words she ever spoke were in the form of a metaphor. With that, she acknowledges the power of words. Her love for language has allowed her to develop poetry and take on the nuances of characters as an actor. She has spent her acting career focusing on Classical and Non-classical texts.
