Tonight I am talking to George Lee author of the book Lov(H)er. Since the last time we shared a conversation George has found love, and this experience has changed his life. We will get up close and personal so you can understand this life changing shift.. We will also here about updates to his book and how writing it has helped to transform his life. George Lee Jr. began writing at the age of 12 beginning with poetry and Hip Hop influenced rhymes and songs. In his mid-20s he began publicly performing his poetry in the form of spoken-word in and around NE Ohio open-mics, coffeehouses, bookstores, art galleries and universities under the pseudonym of Echo. By the time he was well into his 30s, he had been a member of several spoken-word collectives having performed in Akron, Detroit, Columbus, Atlanta, New York City, Philadelphia as well as his hometown of Cleveland among many other cities. This platform also awarded him the opportunity of auditioning and then qualifying as a finalist to perform on HBO’s now defunct DefPoetryJam in 2005. In the fall of 2013, he was selected to be one of a mere handful of poets to open up for celebrated spoken-word icon, Saul Williams at The Grog Shop in Cleveland, Ohio. That year saw him conceive the very idea for his current release, “Lov(H)er” as it stretches his writing ability outside of his comfort zone of poetry.
