This September we will launch the 3rd session of the Maryknoll Affiliate Book Group.
There will be two sessions:
- Fridays at 1:00 pm ET … 10:00 am PT – first session begins September 8th
- Sundays at 8:00 pm ET … 5:00 pm PT – first session begins September 10th
The chosen book is: Trails of Hope and Terror by Miguel de la Torre
Each of seven sections (Borders, Economics, Myths, Family Values, the Politics of Fear, Christian Perspectives, Ethical Responses) opens with an examination of an issue and then includes a story or testimony by an undocumented immigrant, a story by someone who works with the undocumented, and a poem, prayer, or a song that expresses the hope and the terror involved in crossing the border. This combination of analysis, story, and artistic expression opens up the complexities of immigration. Cost is $12 at the Orbis site (link above).
We will be starting in under a month, so please respond soon.
Thank you and peace,
Paula Schaffner, Mary Ryan-Hotchkiss, Bob Short
