We're so excited to host local authors Mark Gruber-Lebowitz and Sheldon Gruber-Lebowitz for a reading of their new book for young readers, Peace Pom: Ronan Makes a Difference.
Ronan is a young Pomeranian dog who is hoping to tell everyone all about peace - how we can feel it ourselves and how we can spread it to those around us. First, we must find our own peace, deep within ourselves, through whatever brings peace to our souls. Then there are simple acts of friendship and loyalty - sharing our gifts, offering comfort and kindness to those who are hurting, and standing up against bullies. Ronan talks about how we can celebrate diversity, welcome immigrants who are new to the country, care for our endangered planet, and embrace nonviolent conflict resolution. All of us, big and little, can be makers of peace in many ways. In this second book of a series, Ronan the Pomeranian presents a description of peace in its many forms, offering strategies that will make this a more peaceful and just world.
This is a lovely book, and the event is suitable for readers and peacemakers of all ages! Welcome Mark and Sheldon!
