Her debut novel, "Mornings in Jenin" (Bloomsbury, 2010), was an international bestseller, received critical acclaim and was translated into 28 languages. The rights to her second novel, "The Blue Between Sky And Water" (Bloomsbury, 2015) was sold in 19 languages before it was published in the English original.

To date, they have built well over 32 playgrounds in Palestine, Lebanon and Syria and sponsored numerous childhood development programs.

[2:15pm] Food--Our Daily Link with Mother Earth
Description:
Our September 10 Seeds of Hope gathering will help us shift our relationship to our food--from a commodity that we mindlessly consume to a living connection to Mother Earth (“Pachamama”). We’ll meet at 2:15 at Earth Eden Sanctuary, the organic farm that Chante Ishta (AKA Nancy Kasper) lovingly created from a sadly abused piece of land in Wayne County. As Chante Ishta leads us on a tour of the farm, we’ll experience for ourselves how mindful partnership with Mother Earth calls forth her bounty, beauty and beneficence. We’ll partake in its goodness in a kind of communion ceremony, and we’ll get a feel for how indigenous peoples live in a mutually-beneficial relationship with the earth. As Robin Wall Kimmerer wrote, “Knowing that you love the earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect and celebrate. But when you feel that the earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond.” We’ll explore ways to live in more mutuality with the earth by the food we eat, and we’ll leave with an informed intention to choose our food from a new level of awareness and a more respectful relationship with the earth. If it rains, we will do some of our process indoors, but we’ll still tour the farm, so please bring rain gear or an umbrella if rain is possible. The event will end at 4:30. The farm is at 9393 York Settlement Rd., North Rose, NY 14516. We will have a car pool from Asbury United Methodist Church (the parking lot of 1010 East Ave.) at 1:30. It's about a 45-minute drive from there. Or meet at the farm at 2:15. Here are easy driving directions: Find your way to Rt 104 east towards Sodus. From the intersection/signal light of Rt. 14, continue 2.5 miles further to Norris Rd. and take that right to the end. Turn left (on York Settlement Rd) and it's the first house on the left. House and barn with green tin roof, big tree in front and wacky mailbox across the road. For more information on Earth Eden Sanctuary, visit http://www.earthedensanctuary.org/. Seeds of Hope is sponsored by Rochester's Pachamama Alliance chapter. The group is free and open to everyone.
