Don’t miss the launch of What the Moon Gave Her by Christi Steyn in Cape Town (8 Mar)
 More about the book!

Join Christi Steyn in Cape Town for the launch of her debut poetry collection What the Moon Gave Her!

What the Moon Gave Her is a breathtaking collection of poetry that inspires strength and self-healing during a time when we couldn’t feel farther apart.

Steyn is a South-African born model and actress currently living in New York. During the pandemic, she downloaded TikTok and performed some of the Shakespearean Sonnets. People loved it, and she now posts videos of herself reciting her own poetry to her 800,000 TikTok followers.

About the book

It is never too late to become all that you envision. Your birth happens more than once so sink into each feeling of uncertainty and ride with the waves.

What the Moon Gave Her is a poetry collection born from self-discovery. The debut collection from Christi Steyn delves into themes of self-doubt, anxiety, and the unprecedented loss felt during the height of the pandemic.

Beauty is found in every corner of this book’s six dynamic chapters – ‘birth by the ocean’, ‘you plucked too many petals’, ‘how to grow wings’, ‘dancing dolphins’, ‘full moon/bloom’ and ‘two trees intertwined’.

What the Moon Gave Her is a moving collection about rebirth and the way we reconnect with the world around us through love.
