New Poetry Book, ‘a Shaft of Light,’ from Author and Filmmaker Ann Huang Now Available for Purchase

Author, poet, and experimental filmmaker, Ann Huang, is pleased to announce the release of her newest book of surrealist poems, a Shaft of Light.

a Shaft of Light is a poetry collection about nostalgia. The overarching story touches on dissipation and dis-appropriation of human synergies with regard to geopolitical and technological upheavals. Readers are encouraged to look back at the extinction of dinosaurs, a time when the earth faced its greatest loss. The question is: Are we next?

With the recent release of her book, a Shaft of Light, Huang would like to welcome readers to review her latest collection of surrealist poetry.

Huang is thrilled at the response for her book thus far. As a token of her appreciation, she is offering a free NatureBright Deluxe Light Therapy Box for those who review a Shaft of Light on Amazon. Huang is also a co-founder of NatureBright Company, a household name for therapeutic lights, which have helped over one million happy customers obtain a healthier lifestyle.

Once you’ve reviewed the book, message us or send an email to with a mailing address for which you’d like to receive your gift.

Leslie Ullman, author of Library of Small Happiness, describes the book as being “inhabited by a shapeshifting ‘you,’ who is sometimes the speaker, sometimes an intimate other, and sometimes, perhaps, figures mentioned along the way.”
