Whit Albright grew up in Sun Valley, Idaho and spent his youth exploring the outdoors, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing, and biking. After spending some time studying art at the University of Idaho, Whit went to work in corporate sales.
Twelve years ago, Whit returned to his creative nature and began writing poetry and short stories. Hoping to bring people together through laughter and wonder, Whit brings everyday experiences to life within his imaginative words. The poetry anthology From a Smile Falls a Laugh is his first published collection.
From a Smile Falls a Laugh is a whimsical walk into a world of creativity, joy, laughter, compassion and adventure through poems and illustrations. Each of Whit Albright’s poems is illustrated by a young adult who has created an original piece of artwork inspired by the writing. This inventive and entertaining book is meant to be shared by adults and children alike—a wonderful read aloud activity for teachers or parents of small children, or a playful experience for kids who are old enough to read it themselves.
