Writer and director Chloé McFeters (You Look a Lot Like Me) has released six coloring book journals in May 2017, as part of her “Words and Color” series: Dear Heart, for those living with heart disease; C is for Courage, for those living with cancer; The Ally Within, for those living with autoimmune related illnesses; Led By Love, for those serving as family caregivers; Still, But Not Silent, for domestic violence survivors; and Beyond the Call, for women who have served in the military.
“My hope is that these books will inspire people to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a way that is comfortable and calming for them, in words and color,” says McFeters. “As I’ve gotten a bit older, what seems to be most interesting and important to me is working on projects that hopefully help people to feel ‘seen,’ and a little less alone in the world. I hope these books do that for some.”
