A gathering of writers, poets, artists, and spiritual leaders from around the world to express sorrow and their unwavering hope for peace in our world. It is a dialogue and a beginning.
It's official -- Lorenzo Press is now the American publisher for two new international anthologies of poetry and art, THE BOOK OF HOPE and THE WORLD HEALING BOOK. Beyond Borders Press, the cutting edge publisher based in Iceland, is the original publisher of the books. Beyond Borders Press is now a U.S. imprint of Lorenzo Press. Since we are based in Connecticut, these fine books will now be easier and less expensive for U.S. residents to order. Profits from the books go to UNICEF. These two very handsome volumes have a sturdy paperback binding and include poetry, paintings, drawings, and photography (some in color) expressing outrage, horror, hope, and love in works created in response to the terror attacks on 9/11. Icelandic poet-artist Birgitta Jonsdottir sent out a call for poetry to the world community and many responded, including well-known authors such as Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Rita Dove, and the Dhali Lama.
