This morning, I am very happy because I’ve learned that Khaled Hosseini has another book to offer us, which will be released in September. Why does this information make me so happy? First, because his books always move me, while teaching me something about my fellow humans…he has a unique ability to make those CONNECTIONS which I seek, connections which enrich my life. What really pleases me about his newest book, Sea Prayer is that it will bring much-needed attention to the refugee crisis. Based upon my personal experience in reading his previous books, I’m confident he will do this in such a beautiful, gifted way that hearts will be touched and a global issue will be presented and understood on a very personal level. I’m feeling a particular connection with Sea Prayer because my current writing endeavor, Garment of Destiny is an attempt to connect readers to the experience of refugees. It is a sequel to A Thousand Fibers and I hope to publish it soon. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to read Khaled Hosseini’s Sea Prayer in September and I’m hoping all of you will also purchase it – not only because I’m confident it will be an excellent book, but also because the proceeds will benefit the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency). Truly, the pen is mightier than the sword!
