The talented Riverdale actress expands her repertoire with her new book of poems entitled Swimming Lessons. Lili claims that the art of writing poetry has been a healing experience for her. She has been journaling since her younger days.
Lili realised that she had written enough poetry to fill up a book and this what prompted her to compile and publish Swimming Lessons. “I’ve always enjoyed journaling, but I never really took it as seriously as I have the last couple of years,” she explains. “Just the last year in general, or since the pandemic began, I’ve been writing a lot. My journals are where my mind can just kind of be.”

Swimming Lessons has a vast number of poems – around 100 and it took Lili around five years to amass the collection of poems in it. The book is described as debut collection of poetry that “explores the euphoric beginnings of young love, battling anxiety and depression in the face of fame, and the inevitable heartbreak that stems from passion.” The underlying themes of the poems vary from love, heartbreak and finding hope. “I’ve already written so much more since the book has been finished,” says Reinhart. “I’m basically ready to come out with another one.”
