Tens of millions of people are being uprooted, separated from their families and risk losing their culture as a result of war, poverty, repression and climate injustice. Rest in My Shade is a poetic story about displacement and loss recited by an ancient olive tree. In today’s world of refugee and migration crises, Rest in My Shade is a tool for building understanding about the universality of the displacement experience. It conveys hope that together we can build a world in which we can all live without fear, move freely, value, and share the cultures and traditions that make us who we are, and feel dignity and acceptance everywhere.  Join us for a discussion with co-author Nora Lester Murad.  This event is free and open to the public.  Copies of the book will be available for sale.  For more information, please call 914.449.6514 or email [email protected].
