Even members who are not strong readers are making progress. "When they stumble over words or don't know the definition, we're extremely patient. Some of them were so intimidated by reading out loud that we thought they couldn't read at all," Burton said. "But by the end of our sessions, they were reading. They're doing it!"

Conference organizer Frechic Burton , founder of the nonprofit From Lemons 2 Lemonade, reached out to Books@Work to create the session.

“We believed being able to have a table full of women expressing themselves through the pages of poetic literature could become a life-changing experience,” said Burton, who oversees Books@Work for women in East Cleveland Municipal Court. “The Books@Work session allowed single moms to share their experiences, their interpretations, and most of all, their commonalities with each other through those poetic pieces.”

"Prolific Tweeter starts support group for single parents:" (Cleveland.com)

"I've been tweeting for four years now. Long enough to be amazed at how some teens and twentysomethings find the time to post streams of profane, immature and inane stuff on Twitter. The sheer volume of it is daunting. And that's what made Frechic Burton , a 28-year-old Painesville mom of three, stand out to me."
