On Saturday, November 1st, 2008, at 3pm, Jana Laiz will be at the Book House to sign her new novel, Weeping Under this Same Moon. Laiz has also written a beautiful children's picture book, Elephants of the Tsunami.
Weeping Under this Same Moon tells the story of two teens from different cultures. Mei, an artist in Vietnam, is forced to escape as one of the refugees known as "Boat People." Hannah, a student in America, learns about the refugees' struggles and feels she must help. The two girls are ultimately brought together across cultural lines.
From the back of the book: "Weeping Under this Same Moon is a testament to the power of love and the spirit of volunteerism; affirming that doing for others does so much for one's self."
Please join us in welcoming Jana Laiz to the Book House!
