About the Event

Onyx is the fifth published book from author Cyrene Renee. It is a dark place. At times, it is a

sad place, but a place we can all relate to. It is a real space and it should not be ignored. It

could be a place of peace and solace. A private place within ourselves that could be the source

of comfort and motivation. Our thoughts can roam free and judgement cannot survive. It is a

space of love. It is a space where the noise is, and our voices can be heard. It is a place of

consoling. It is just as sacred as our individual and collective light that we share. The hope is

we all overcome all our fears.
