Editor Birgitta Jonsdottir from Iceland and twenty contributors will read from two extraordinary anthologies, THE WORLD HEALING BOOK and BOOK OF HOPE, that hopes to bring healing and understanding to New York City.
The reading is on May 18, 2002 at 2pm at St. Agnes Library, New York City.
The contributors include Gigi Zoppello from Italy, Kate Levette from England, Vidya Krishna from India, and many others.
There are also poems from the Dalai Lama, Sufi Master Muhammad Suhri, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
"The anthologies were a direct response to the fall of the two towers and its outcome around the world. Major poets, artists, writers, and spiritual leaders contribute to the books with their thoughts and anyone reading the two books will hopefully feel joy, hope, and understanding," said editor Birgitta Jonsdottir.
All proceeds from the sales of THE WORLD HEALING BOOK and THE BOOK OF HOPE will go to UNICEF with the focus to help Afghan children.
