POETS RESPOND TO 9/11, MAY 18 NYC
15 May 2002
More than 20 Poets from around the world will celebrate the publication of THE WORLD HEALING BOOK & THE BOOK OF HOPE in response to 9/11
Editor Birgitta Jonsdottir from Iceland and twenty contrirbutors will read from two extraordinary anthologies, THE WORLD HEALING BOOK and THE 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, and Vidya Krishna from India.

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 towers and its outcome around the world. Major poets, writers, artists, 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.

The two anthologies are published by Beyond Borders, a cutting edge publishing house from Iceland with its roots in cyberspace. Birgitta Jonsdottir is the editor and the creator of the anthologies.
